I have now made two visits to Northern Russia to Arkhangelsk where the other main collection of objects found on Nova Zembla is held. Invited by Arkhangelsk Museum and the Dutch Embassy in Moscow, I gave a presentation on the current project with the Rijksmuseum as part of the International Barents Forum, 2011. This brought together scientists, curators, conservators, polar experts and archaeologists. Working with curators and polar experts in Arkhangelsk I aim to explore drawing in relation to sites of refuge and preservation. As part of the development of this new project, three hundred of my small drawings have been taken on board a Russian research vessel and buried in the ice on Nova Zembla. I hope to be able to join an expedition that will retrieve them in 2013. They will form the basis for new works.
