Svalbard: The Land of Dreams

Elena Korotkaia21

March – 14 April 2018

An exhibition from 21 March – 14 April 2018 of photographic prints  taken by Gladstone artist Elena Korotkaia on Svalbard, an island in the Arctic, less than 1400 kilometres away from the North Pole.  Exactly one year on, the artist is showing these stunning documentary photographs for the very first time.  From vast, uninhabited, icy terrain and abandoned coal mining settlements to the surreal polar light glowing over the sparkling snow and gorgeous glaciers, this desolate but beautiful place is the land of dreams in every sense.

Elena Korotkaia is supported with funding from Regional Arts Fund, an Australian Government program that is designed to benefit regional and remote arts practitioners, arts workers, audiences and communities.
