Metaborealis, a frozen artworld shattered by the Crypto Winter, is host to a ray of hope found in the creations of the artists that inhabit it. Between ice crystals, and ancient monuments, visitors can find the resilience of artists that continue to create, even in the most challenging and unpredictable of circumstances.

Title: Resilience

Artist: Igor Martins

Year: 2022

Technique and dimensions: Media (Video/Mp4) - (Experimental) 91MB

Concept (explain the artwork): The resilient person is one who understands the crisis ahead and mobilises resources to overcome it. It does not mean that the resilient individual is invulnerable or armoured. It is not about always coming out unharmed from a critical situation but about developing the ability to deal with the crisis efficiently and come out of it stronger.

Title: Numb

Artist: Wiseman

Year: 2022

Technique and dimensions: 5000 x 5000 PX (Image/ PNG) 14MB

Concept: Numbed from the freezing cold the one that is so strong it penetrates the bones . But it’s not always so harsh . When it’s freezing cold diamond dust forms ; the beautiful tiny ice crystals shining under the sun of clear skies that are only seen and can be kept cold below freezing point . Diamonds are so cold when touched to skin , but only because they rob the heat out of it . And this is just a small portion of its charm .

Title: Resilience

Artist: Nhefertiti

Year: 2022

Technique and dimensions:  4000 x 4000 PX (Image/ JPEG) 4MB

Concept: Every woman lives with her demons and colours. Understanding and accepting them is the beginning to use them in our favour. We have had to learn to transform our issues into opportunities to create, grow, explore and teach. This work is my little tribute to those women who never gave up, whose resilience makes us free women today.
