An Arctic island will journey south this summer to arrive for the UK’s hosting of the Olympic Games as a visiting island nation. On its journey, the island passed through International Waters and was declared a new nation with citizenship open to all.
Nowhereisland is conceived by artist Alex Hartley as a nomadic public artwork—as one landscape moving through another and a symbolic territory representing thousands of citizens across the world.
The urge to seek out and possess the remote and unfamiliar landscapes at the ‘edges’ of the world has been an enduring creative impulse for artists and writers.
