Annie Heckman and Lorien Jordan: Love Letters to Antarctica

@ Swimming Pool Project Space

2858 W Montrose, Chicago, IL 60618

Opening Saturday, August 21st, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Sunday, September 12th

An exhibit created by artists Lorien Jordan and Annie Heckman that takes on an uncanny, wistful outsider’s view of Antarctica’s history, landscape, and animal life. With research of visual and narrative information ranging from journals of the early explorers of modern Antarctica to cinematic explorations by Jacques Cousteau and Werner Herzog, these artists create a project that both explores the limitations of our understandings of Antarctica’s environment and revels in the emotional space of longing for distant, life-threatening adventure.
