Ivan Juarez is taking part of The Agri/Cultures.Seed-Links Exhibition in Longyearbyen, Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, Norway.
Agri/Cultures.Seed-Links Exhibition aims to celebrate and honor the fertile bonds between biological and cultural diversity in agri-food systems through artistic approaches. In a deep cavern carved inside a frozen mountain on an island high up in the Arctic lies the most bio-diverse room in the world The Svalbard Global Seed Vault. In order to preserve the cultural heritage of the seeds, the Agri / Cultures Project initiative seeks to create a link with this significant place through the deposit/plantation/burial of artistic works inside the mountain where the Vault is located. Art works that speak to the bio-cultural connections in agriculture and the links seeds have to society, ecology and culture through their presence within agri-food systems.
Agri Cultures.Seed-Links Exhibition is a cultural-artistic initiative from Agri/Cultures Project and Seed Cultures Initiative
