Following the Hors Pistes Nuuk one-month residency, this exhibition was hosted at the Lokalmusem, Nuuk, in Greenland.
Greenland is an island with limited natural resources and a harsh climate. The local artisanal techniques take the surrounding geographical constraints into account and the Inuit culture is deeply connected to its land. The craftsmen find their inspiration in nature and work with materials such as stone, wood, soil, wool, skin, and bones of hunted animals.
The scenography was inspired by this respect for the natural landscape that is strongly embedded in the greenlandic culture. The natural rocks were gathered in the surroundings of the museum. They have been assembled with recycled materials during the time of the exhibition and were then put back in there initial place.
