aAron Munson’s ISACHSEN exhibition explores the impact of isolation in Canada’s far north. It’s an intimate look at the now-abandoned Isachsen weather station.
aAron’s father was stationed there in the 70s, but it wasn’t until he read his father’s diary that he realized the crushing toll the darkness and isolation of Canada’s North had.
aAron decided to visit Isachsen himself, to walk in his father’s footsteps. And recognizing that loneliness and isolation are themes that everyone can relate to, he decided to build an art exhibit around it. aAron has collaborated with three other artists to create an immersive experience. The exhibition is showing at dc3 Art Projects in Edmonton until February 17.
