Victoria Buck’s latest Polaroid images and sculptures are a meditation on her recent sailing trip around the world’s most Northern Island, Svalbard, secured in the Norwegian territory.
A sculpture artist whose work researches ideas about our existence with and relationship to landscape, and our changing perspective of what is the threatened and the threatening. Buck is interested in the constant navigational dance of knowing and trusting our environment, and being at the mercy of it.
