V–A–C Sreda online magazine continues its three-month series of podcasts dedicated to water and its significance in culture, art, and folklore in collaboration with the Tolk audio platform.
In this episode, we discuss the image of the North in art. How have artists portrayed Northern nature? Why did painters and photographers accompany scientific expeditions? What is a cryophone, what is the sound of a frozen lake, and what does the legend of the ancestral duck have to do with anything?
V–A–C Sreda editor Maxim Shibaev discusses these and other questions with the art historian Valeria Berest, the photographer and Zapovedniki Ecological Centre expert Alexander Zheleznyak, as well as the artist Kristina Ovsyankina, who speaks about the peculiarities of the Northern Lights and the mythology of the Komi Republic.
