Photographs of Greenlandic icebergs sourced from various photographic archives in Denmark are printed on fabric and then placed and photographed in different locations across Denmark. These sites represent a symbiotic process of change, as both landscapes are disappearing in line with climate change. Since the Permanent Court for Inter-People's Justice condemned Danish supremacy over the whole of Greenland in 1933, the Danish state has been compelled to establish a national presence in East Greenland. This presence is still maintained today, primarily through military installations and research projects, particularly focusing on climate research.


Background: Greenland has been part of Denmark for over 300 years, first as a colony and then as a province since 1953. Greenland and the Faroe Islands joined the Danish kingdom through a constitutional reform. This was done with the blessing of the United Nations, which was working intensively on decolonization at that time. After 1953, the Danish state attempted to shape Greenlandic society according to its own vision. The impacts this had on Greenlandic society are not widely recognized in Danish society. I work with Danish archives and collections about Greenland that have been collected by Danes. As someone who has never been to Greenland, I approach the topic with my own prejudices, having grown up with ideas and stories about Greenland that I received from school, the media, and my family. As part of the process, I work with individual series that I combine in different ways.
