Inside the Antarctic Huts of Scott and Shackleton
The Trust has enjoyed considerable success with Still Life: Inside the Antarctic Huts of Scott and Shackleton, the book by photographer Jane Ussher and the Antarctic Heritage Trust’s Executive Director. The Trust has also turned that partnership into an inspiring exhibition of the same name.
STILL LIFE, the exhibition, is a unique visual and sensory experience that takes the viewer inside the historic huts of heroic polar explorers Captain Robert Falcon Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton.
Created by Jane Ussher, with support from the Antarctic Heritage Trust, the timed sensory experience allows visitors to step inside a specially designed cube to become immersed in Jane Ussher’s large-scale, wall-projected images. This experience captures the landscape of Antarctica and the isolation endured by the heroic early explorers.
STILL LIFE @ Australian National Maritime Museum 2015
As part of the Antarctic Heritage Trust’s commemoration of Ernest Shackleton’s 1914-1917 centenary, the Trust is currently partnering with the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM), Sydney to bring STILL LIFE to Australia for the first time.
While STILL LIFE: Inside the Antarctic Huts of Scott and Shackleton will be a stand-alone exhibition, it will complement ANMM’S Shackleton: Escape from Antarctica exhibition. The exhibition will run from 2 April 2015 – 1 September 2015.
