The Festival Exhibition

The Industrial Boomerang

Through artistic reflections, the festival exhibition encapsulates the spirit of re-industrialisation of the north; its trends, along with its opportunities and consequences.  From a physical salon-spa where Error collective (Helsinki) will transform your hair, to a virtual-spa by New Mineral Collective (Tromsø) where your body will experience how the earth encounters acupuncture caused by mining activities.  From a temporary pop-up radio station devoted to the Barents maritime industry and culture by Nabil Ahmed and Dámaso Randulfe (London), to the last attempt to bring life to the Seaman’s Club that was once the heart of the Russian sailors’ milieu in Kirkenes – now transformed by Sever7 (St Petersburg) into a mystical Flying Bar.  From the raw leather weaves of Marius Moldvær (Oslo) that reflect what the people and communities of the Barents Sea coast live and breathe, to the web-app and game created by eeefff (Moscow) where youth can sell their future goals and plans in the form of ‘tradable futures’ on the Dark net.

As a sum, these projects draw together concepts of industry that have brought prosperity to the north – in present, past and future tense.
