It Came from the North is a photography exhibition that honors the beauty of Nordic nature through photographs of traditional landscape imagery and abstract forms. It offers an insight into the unique relationship the Nordic people have with nature, showcasing why nature has such a special place in society and how it has been incorporated into daily life, at individual and communal level.
The founder of ISA Art Advisory, Ms Deborah C. Iskandar, says, “We invite you to come and immerse yourself in the beauty of Nordic nature through photography, while learning the values that come with it. With this exhibition, we bring art to a public space to encourage more people to appreciate art.’’
The exhibition reveals the works of nine Nordic artists: Tine Poppe and Stig Marlon Weston (Norway), Nanna Hänninen and Sandra Kantanen (Finland), Mads Peter Iversen and Astrid Kruse Jensen (Denmark), Stefan Isaksson (Sweden) and artist couple Inka and Niclas Lindergård (Finland and Sweden respectively). In addition, two Indonesian photographers, Vicky Tanzil and Alexander Thian, present their vision of the North. Some of these artists are known solely as landscape photographers, while others have a more multi-thematic and versatile approach to their artistic practice. What they all have in common is an appreciation and love of nature.
