Exhibition: EVGENIA ARBUGAEVA: ARCTIC STORIES (The Photographers' Gallery, London; 6 November 2015 - 16 January 2016)


This is the first UK solo show of the award winning Russian artist, Evgenia Arbugaeva (b.1985. Russia). The exhibition will include two bodies of work Weather Man (2014) and Tiksi (2010).

Weather Man is inspired by the solitary life of a meteorologist living on a remote peninsular in northern Russia. Having met Vyacheslav Korotki by chance on a journey through the artic, Arbugaeva remained at his outpost for two weeks, photographing his day-to-day life, unique surrounding and the isolation of his existence.

Tiksi depicts Arbugaeva’s hometown, a Siberian settlement on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. Featuring ethereal images the series captures the light, landscape and spirit of the town through the personal story of Tanya, a young local girl.
