  • Aired 07/20/2009

In February 2009 Belgian artist Wim Tellier went to the South Pole to create the first art installation on Antarctica. 6 gigantic pictures (800m² each) of sunbathing elderly persons were brought together on the coldest place on earth. The photos weighed 3000kg and were laid out covering a 30.000m² snowfield. Wim Tellier photographed the installation with a DPM in extreme temperatures reaching -58°C.
