A research exhibition by IMAS PhD student Miranda Nieboer whose research investigates Antarctic architecture, interiority and ice, engaging with psychological, spatial and physical processes that characterise Antarctica.

On invitation of the French Polar Institute IPEV (Institute Polaire Paul-Emile Victor) Miranda joined the IPEV traverse RAID63 to drive a tractor through Antarctica and supply the French-Italian station Concordia in the continental interior.

On 19 January 2018 the RAID63 left from the coastal base at Cap Prud’homme. The convoy team of nine men and two women drove two snowploughs and eight tractors towing fuel tanks, cargo and living units on sledges to Concordia located at an altitude of 3233 m.

Miranda will be working in the gallery and displaying still and moving image works from her traverse experience. Come and see research in process and what it was like to penetrate the Antarctic interior.
