Global Warming

Jaco Ishulutaq
Using media from the land—soapstone, bone and ivory—Ishulutaq’s carving explores global warming and its impacts on glaciers, ice, wildlife, and weather, while encouraging the cultures of the North and South to join hands in taking care of the environment and each other.

A contemplative portrait of daily life in the Arctic community of Igloolik, Kobe uses stereoscopic 3D to create a moving image tableau with depths and volumes that fluctuate and emerge as the eye wanders through fixed long shots.

This Clement World

This Clement World is a fiercely creative and charismatic tribute to our rapidly changing environment, as seen through the prism of Cynthia Hopkins’ deeply personal lens and wild cross-disciplinary style. Performed live with a 15-piece chorus and band, This Clement World blends outlandish fiction and original avant-folk songs with Hopkins’ own documentary footage from an Arctic expedition with Cape Farewell, infusing our global climate crisis with humour, poetics and urgency.
