TARA NICHOLSON

Tara Nicholson
Canadian Artist based in Victoria, BC

'Arctic Claims,' incorporates large-scale photography, video and installation to document, question and visualize the reality and processes surrounding scientific work currently taking place within the Arctic Circle. This work is supported by the British Columbia Art Council and by the University of Copenhagen's Arctic Station in Western Greenland. In February 2017, Nicholson continued this series with a production trip to Inuvik, NWT. In 2018 she will complete a third research trip to northern Russia to document the landscape and scientific work taking place.

This work was presented as a solo show at the Burnaby Art Gallery in June 2017 with a published catalogue still available.
