This week join Alex Hartley in London to celebrate the launch of his book  Now Here is Land and film NORTH, documenting the ambitious, celebratory project Nowhereisland. 

Hosted by Victoria Miro, London on Thursday 1 December, you are invited to celebrate the launch of the book and film that chart the journey of Nowhereisland. A new nation for a complicated world that travelled the high arctic region of Svalbard to the south coast of England as part of the Cultural Olympiad, 2012.

Through photographs, writings, and reflections, Now Here is Land records this remarkable work of land art for our time, from Alex Hartley’s discovery of the Arctic island in 2004 and its ocean-bound journey around the UK’s southwest coast, via political wrangling with governments and the involvement of the nation-state of Nowhereisland’s 23,003 citizens, all the way to the island’s final act of dispersal into space.

The launch includes a panel discussion about the project and it’s legacy with artist Alex Hartley, Situations’ own Claire Doherty, filmmaker David Bickerstaff and artist Tania Kovats.
