Czigane – Not the whole story (2019)
Inspired by the story of Czigane, a Siberian sledge dog that went on Scott’s 1910-1913 British Antarctic Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole, artists Bik Van der Pol developed a video work, in collaboration with the children and teacher of St David’s C of E Primary School in Exeter, and the National Meteorological Library and Archive (Met Office), in which they explore and unfold the complex relationship between objects, images and language, ownership and naming, and global trade.
Commissioned by Exeter Culture with support from, the Met Office, Exeter Cathedral and RAMM
