Joanna Mortreux, a Melbourne-based artist, has created the series The Awkwardness of Living and Dying Simultaneously, where monumental figures sit like cryogenically frozen specimens of either some ancient past or some frozen future. Like artefacts in a museum, they exist as landmarks or even portals to another space or imagined time. All inspired by the crazy cold beauty of Iceland.
