Requiem

Requiem, Katie Paterson at Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, UK, 9th April – 11th June, 2022.

A new exhibition by Katie Paterson tells the birth and life of our planet in a single object – an object that uses dust gathered from material dating from pre-solar times to those of the present – is to go on display for the first time at Ingleby Gallery, this spring.

The Future Library handover ceremony 2022

The Future Library handover ceremony 2022 will take place on Sunday 12th June in Oslo.

This will be a very special event, a milestone for a visionary project: not only will the annual handover take place, but this year three acclaimed authors will be part of the ceremony, which will include the opening of the manuscripts’ resting place, the silent room in the new public library Deichman Bjørvika. The handover has been postponed for two years and therefore in June we will walk together to the Future Library forest with three renowned authors: the Norwegian novelist Karl Ove Knausgård (year 2019), Vietnamese American writer and poet, Ocean Vuong (year 2020) and Zimbabwean novelist, playwright, filmmaker  Tsitsi Dangarembga. The silent room will be home to all of the manuscripts contributed to the project until their eventual publication in the year 2114. The room is designed by artist Katie Paterson and architects Atelier Oslo and Lund Hagem.

Mirage announcement

Mirage

Katie Paterson and Zeller & Moye have been commissioned by Apple to create a public permanent artwork at the Apple Campus in Cupertino, USA. This public sculpture for the olive grove adjacent to the Visitor’s Center at Apple Park, will be created from cylinders of pure cast glass, made of sand collected from deserts across the Earth. Sand from subtropical deserts, coastal, rain-shadow, interior, mountainous, volcanic and fossilized deserts will be melted into glass. Over four-hundred cast glass columns will combine every desert on Earth into a clear, wave-like form, mimicking a desert dune. Visitors can interact with the artwork, walking alongside and through it, where the glass will subtly melt into the landscape, like a desert mirage. The artwork will be installed in 2022.

To Burn, Forest, Fire, new website

To Burn, Forest, Fire consists of the scent of the first-ever forest on earth and the scent of the last forest of the age of climate crisis, made into incense. It was burned across a variety of sites around the city of Helsinki in 2021, as IHME’s 2021 commission. Visit our new website to explore films, texts, and more.
