THE ARCTIC CIRCLE - JUNE 2017 //  The Arctic Circle residency program brings together international artists of all disciplines, scientists, architects, and educators who collectively explore remote and fascinating destinations aboard an ice-class Tall Ship and takes place in the international territory of Svalbard, a mountainous Arctic archipelago just 10 degrees from the North Pole.


New works in response to The Arctic Circle are a product of Levesque's interdisciplinary practice with a consideration for the materiality and tradition of formal photography and its relationship to new consumer technologies, image-culture, objects in space, and systems.

PLACE/HOLD is a working title that encompasses several components from a connected network of distinct but related projects that concern Arctic image consumption, data as the new divine, spatial simulacrum, and corporeal complexity.
