Arktisk Institute

Angalavaa is a series of drawings and photographs created during a research fellowship at the Arktisk Institut's Greenlandic/Danish archive in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Angalavaa is a Greenlandic word meaning wandering through, moving through something. The series contemplates the intricate and complex relationship between the Danes and Greenlanders, and the disconnect of an archive as 'memoryscape' from the  landscape/stories it signifies. See Angalavaa writing for further thoughts on this.
