4 March –7 September 2021
The Scandinavia House, New York is hosting an online exhibition of Conversations with a Shipwreck, a collaboration between writer Joan Wickersham and photographer Adam Davies, inspired by the seventeenth-century Swedish warship Vasa. During the covid pandemic, Joan and Adam became fascinated by the possibilities of developing a multimedia exhibition that would speak directly to the viewer in a time of isolation. Scandinavia House, together with the American-Scandinavian Foundation whose funding helped to support the work in Sweden, has given the opportunity to make the first presentation of this digital show, which pairs audio readings of twelve of Joan’s written pieces with Adam’s large-format photographs.
The exhibition can be viewed through the link, between 4 March – 7 September 2021 (exhibition concluded).
