The 28th rendition of the famous ICEHOTEL has just opened for the season of 2018!
”The entire ICEHOTEL opened December 15 on the riverbank in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. With a total of 35 uniquely designed art- and deluxe suites, ice bar, ice ceremony hall and ice gallery, the guests are welcomed to experience an unforgettable night on ice and snow. 36 artists from 17 different countries have created 15 totally unique art suites, a magnificent Main Hall, and a special ice ceremony hall. Everything, including the artwork, can only be experienced at ICEHOTEL during the winter in Jukkasjärvi. When the winter season is over, it all melts down and return to Torne River as part of a perfect cycle.”
Johan Kauppi & Nina Kauppi was two of the international artists selected to contribute to this years edition with the ’Monstera’ Art Suite. A themed winter garden for sweet dreams, inspired by the popular as well characteristic plant Monstera Deliciosa.
ICEHOTEL also made an extended interview: “The artist duo Kauppi & Kauppi talks ice and design – from New York to Jukkasjärvi”. Read the full interview here.
