Presentation

Blizzard takes you on a crazy, poetic, and tender journey into the depths of winter and invites you to lose yourself in a moment of complete wonder.

What if winter had taken over everything? Not only outside, in the streets and fields, but also inside the houses, the bedrooms, under our clothes, and even in our hearts. What if everything, absolutely everything, was buried under snow, clouded by a white storm, the north wind freezing time as it passes over us? This could be a catastrophe, or rather a chance to start over and fix our mistakes. A blank page in the form of a blizzard.

With artists at the top of their game and extrordinary visual poetry, Blizzard promises to blow away everything in its path.
