IN VIVO, the 25th Noorderlicht International Photofestival, is about our ambiguous relationship with nature. Museum Bélvédère in Heerenveen becomes the setting for photographic art possessing a confrontational beauty, images inspired by our rich tradition of experiencing nature. IN VIVO will be a modern, threedimensional nature scrapbook with a twist, about how our loving way of experiencing nature is directed by hidden social and cultural constructions.
Noorderlichts aims to raise awareness in its audience about the fact that our natural environment, from intimate back gardens to remote regions, is radically affected, or even created from scratch, by ourselves. IN VIVO challenges and enables the viewer to look in another, probing manner at the living eperiment we call nature.
The Noorderlicht International Photofestival 2018 takes place from 23 June to 23 September. Collaborating with partner organisations, an encompassing multidisciplinary project containing photography, other visual arts, and music is created.
