Still from the film with the same title filmed by Hanna Sjöstrand in 2015. H. Sjöstrand went to Svalbard and tied herself to a boat mast during the hour when the sun for the first time rises above the ocean surface after months of polar night. At that moment a storm was raging on the island. In this way she experienced the romantic artist body through contemporary artist dogmas.
