The immersive exhibition Below the Ice with Mario Cyr invites the audience on a journey to a mysterious and almost-inaccessible place: the Canadian Arctic. As they travel through images taken from filmmaker Mario Cyr’s expeditions, visitors will be drawn into the breathtaking beauty of the spectacular landscapes. Polar bears, walruses, narwhals, sea angels and large marine mammals cross his path. Witnessing the magnificence of these endangered landscapes and the creatures that inhabit them, visitors will also become aware of their fragility.
