The Fortunetellers

Ellie Ga
The Fortunetellers

The Fortunetellers started in 2007 during Ellie Ga’s residency on the Tara, a research sailboat frozen in the ice of the Arctic Ocean, as part of a scientific mission near the North Pole. This performance aims to be a means of thinking about forecasting, as it could be seen during this expedition: old forms of divination, weather forecasts, oceanographic research, and the  routine life of 10 people stuck in the Arctic region. The Fortunetellers thus combines the artist’s memories with many documents created and archived during her residency aboard (pictures, videos, maps, diary, etc.).
