LIAF 2015 – Disappearing Acts

Titled Disappearing Acts, LIAF 2015 will take its thematic basis on ideas of human agency disappearing through the processes of history, ecology, and technology. This approach is informed by the context of the Lofoten Islands, with its precarious economicenvironmental dependency, its highly marketable “screensaver” scenery, and its cultural legacy of self-sufficiency and retreat from the antagonism of the urbanised world. Organised as a large-scale group exhibition, Disappearing Acts will feature 25–30 international artists, with many works commissioned especially for LIAF 2015. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a full public programme and publication.
