Antarctica

Chris Dobrowolski  

Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest place in the world, home to a few scientists, engineers and medical professionals all at the top of their game. Every day is about survival. Every day is about saving the planet. 

Then Chris came along to make some Art.

For three and a half months Chris lived and worked alongside the team at the British Antarctic Survey. He discovered that sometimes it’s very difficult to justify your position as an Artist whilst everyone around you is a Hero. 

Following on from Chris’ acclaimed show All Roads Lead to Rome this is an adventure story about overcoming hardships and celebrating difference via tales of carnivorous ducks, Ladybird books and a sledge built out of gold picture frames.

“I’m an unashamed fan of Chris’ work and his performance-lectures are worth second and even third looks… grab your Ladybird book of art appreciation and get along.”
– Steve Hawthorne (BBC Radio Suffolk)
