‘we are opposite like that’ Edition

‘we are opposite like that’ is a series of five unique prints of interconnected fictional mythologies inspired by artist Himali Singh Soin's journeys to both polar circles: the Antarctic and the Arctic, in 2017. It fuses a variety of concerns: the ways we know what we do and the skewed hierarchy between reason and spirit, (post-)colonial attitudes and a looming climate crises. It also imagines the polar landscapes as projecting screens for alternate, otherworldly or non-linear futures. This archival set of editions is extracted from the historical component of the moving image work, in which ice forms a ghostly presence overlaying early observations and records of geological phenomena.
