Artists Bik Van der Pol win Exeter Culture commission

Czigane, a Siberian sledge dog that went on Scott’s 1910-1913 British Antarctic Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole, will be the focus of a new commission by international artist duo Bik Van der Pol.

The artists will collaborate with the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM), the Met Office and a local primary school to create a new piece of work for the city. Working with pupils from St David’s C of E Primary School, they will investigate Czigane’s remains – including his skull, skin and collar – which are held in the RAMM collection. Meteorological data from Scott’s expedition will also be considered for its relevance to today’s climate research.
