From 1978 to 1987, approximately 3,500 photographs were taken to create the first accurate topographic map of Greenland. This mapping endeavor was spearheaded by the Danish Mapping and Cadastre Authority, with the task carried out by Danish researchers. The primary objective of the map was to develop tools for locating natural resources such as oil, gas, and coal.

The images captured during this process are for this artwork printed on limestone paper, and the ink is manipulated to convey the landscape's sense of disintegration. As a result, visitors to the exhibition find it challenging to avoid walking on the images, adding a layer of physical engagement to the experience.

(Colonial) Delineations

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.
