The Weather Diaries - Greenland, Iceland and Faroe Islands: An Artistic Investigation Into Identity From The North

Preview Party – Friday, March 24

Exhibition – Saturday, March 25 - Sunday, July 2, 2017


Through striking photographs and one-of-a-kind art installations, The Weather Diaries explores the roots of West Nordic fashion in Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, probing a cultural identity that runs centuries deep and the inescapable impact of nature.

On assignment from The Nordic House (Reykjavik, Iceland), the Swedish artist duo Cooper and Gorfer travelled throughout Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands to explore the roots of West Nordic fashion and probe a cultural identity that runs centuries deep.  The resulting body of work, The Weather Diaries exhibition, is a prolific and compelling collaboration among some of the most gifted artists and designers of the West Nordic region which explores the inspiration of creative minds from a relatively obscure region and scrutinizes the impact of the inescapable physicality of nature and weather. 

The exhibition showcases eleven, one-of-a-kind art installations from the selected designers, alongside large scale photographic artworks by Cooper and Garfor. A short documentary filmed on location gives voice to the designers and portrays the visual magic of these three island nations. Selected designers include Steinunn, Barbara I Gongini, Kría, Nikolaj Kristensen, GUĐRUN & GUĐRUN, Bibi Chemnitz, Jessie Kleemann, Mundi, and Jör by Guđmundur Jörundsson.

For ASI, The Weather Diaries exhibit allows American Swedish Institute ASI to nurture stronger links to contemporary Sweden and the Nordic region to promote an exchange of ideas and values that benefit all people, and to connect its varied audiences globally, yet anchor these experiences locally.
