ESTER VONPLON

Wie viel Zeit bleibt der Endlichkeit

In summer 2016, the Artist Ester Vonlpon visited the International Territory of Svalbard with the residency program “The Arctic Circle”. Ester Vonplon’s Arctic expedition is the last part of a trilogy that focuses on ice, snow and the concept of white.

“Anyone exploring barren, untouched nature, will be captivated by its tranquility and grandeur and begins to turn his attention inward. It’s not the sceneries that are captured by Vonplon’s images, it is the impact they have on viewers …”
