Qiperukkat

handicraft
carving, ceramic



In Greenland, there are maps carved out of wood explaining to newcomers the contours of the fjords, and carved bones representing Tupilaks, the evil spirits, to non-believers.
    Together with Lena, we developed our own carved vocabulary, inspired by Greenlandic language (Kalaallisut) made of assemblies of images.
    Following ideas of objects I had in mind, I carved three antlers, three sentences describing the function and global shape of tableware. Then from her reading and interpretation of the bones, Lena threw a collection of ceramics and carved them relating our dialogue.

Project developped during Hors Pistes Nuuk 2017 residency program.
