Anton Ginzburg’s Hyperborea Series

New York based Russian artist, Anton Ginzburg, invokes the stories and wonder of the mythical region of Hyperborea in his 2011 film and subsequent series of photographs. Ginzburg constructed points of intersection between memory – individual or collective – and imagination, as he set out to locate Hyperborea, traversing the forests of the American Pacific Northwest, the faded palaces of Saint Petersburg, and the Gulags of Russia’s Whte Sea. On the trail of ancient vestiges, primary forests, mammoth fossils and ruins, the explorer was accompanied by the mysterious cloud of red smoke. These photos were taken during filming of the project, and serve as a document of its development. View the captivating final work at his website here: Anton Ginzburg.
