About

Ice Trade features new works by Bernd Behr, Geoffrey Farmer, Lone Haugaard Madsen, George Henry Longly, Thomas Kratz and Florian Roithmayr, all made specific to the exhibition at Chelsea Space or new to UK audiences.

The exhibition title references a 19th-century trade of ice that occurred between Northern Europe, Northern America, and the sub-continent, prior to the development of artificial refrigeration. The history of the ice trade corresponded to a time-specific configuration of environmental and economic processes; several weeks of transit in uninsulated hulls often resulted in quantities of ice being reduced by 50% in mass in the time taken to reach a destination and sales point.
