Final presentation – Tromsø Kunstforening

The final presentation in Tromsø Kunstforening comprises a body of work that can be grouped into 4 sections – as outlined on the floor plan. These groups are collections of individual works that are related. The following is a list of those groups of works.

 

1 – Archive of Uncertainties is a group of works: a series of 14 photograms: Imperial Cabinet Card on MacBook Pro and 4 archive boxes: Orsugiaq, Kryolith, Mine- og Handels-Selskabet, The Fidgety Ones Were Here, and Polar Bear and Pick Axes.

 

2 – Blueprints: Cryolite Deposits (1857-2020), Limits of Movement for Women under Greenlandic Law (1934), Payload on Fire (1929).

 

3 – Polarizer is a large sculpture, which is part of the video installation Half Hidden.

 

4 – Half Hidden is a two channel video installation, incl. epoxy puddles, subtitles on LED panel, a robot mop and the large sculpture Polarizer. 

 

On this page documentation of the video installation Half Hidden is included in the form of a two screen compilation of the work, and two recordings of the videos installed in Tromsø Kunstforening – one cycle with subtitles in English and one with subtitles in Greenlandic (they alternate: two English cycles and one Greenlandic pr hour).
