During October-November 2022, Michelle Fung joined the residency Arctic Circle in arctic Svalbard to conduct research for Northlandia, one of the five imaginary countries in her ongoing 2084 world-building project. During the trip, the artist sketched landscape on site on small woodblocks and weaved Northlandia narrative into the composition and carved the woodblocks on the boat.
The collection of 24 Northlandia Arctic Woodcuts was hand-printed in Hong Kong. These small woodcut prints serve as a starting point for larger works (woodcuts and drawings and more) under the Northlandia arctic narrative she will develop over the next decade.
