The title Gevær states "rifle gun" in Norwegian, indicates a mysterious folklore in frozen Svalbard in 1922, there an unfired gun ended up killing four people. This artwork is constituted of two separated texts: an article on Svalbard Post in 1993 by researcher Tore Sørensen, and the 15-day logbook/journal by artist based on the journey of The Arctic Circle expedition in late 2017.
Throughout the translation between Chinese, English and Norwegian, as well as handwritings, doodling and historical images, artist tries to pursue the truth within the collage of overlapped fragments of date and information, or a so-called trajectory of fate from those keywords, locations, incidents and characters presumably corresponding with each other, which became eventually an ambiguous, but harsh, freezing panorama out of those romantic imagination of the arctic landscape.
