ANERSAAQ – spirit of place - exhibition

Presented by Tura Ya Moya and Det Grønlandske Hus

Tura Ya Moya led by Karen Thastum have specialised in site-specific partly analogue sound and light installations all over Europe and in Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland). With the support of Nordic Culture Point, they transformed a 20-foot cargo container into an Art and projection laboratory enabling them to project images onto the existing environment in public spaces. 

Dividing their work into 12 'Chapters', ANERSAAQ has been visiting more than ten settlements and towns in the far North between 2016 - 17, inviting local children as well as local and international artists and musicians to take part in the exhibition and installations on the trip. Last stop was Qaqortoq the friendship town of Aarhus.

The exhibition shows photograph and Artwork from the more than 12.000 km long trip close to the polar circle.

Welcome to Artisticstorytelling in public spaces: from villages to settlements / fromartist to citizen / from Nordic and Greenlandic history to contemporary art. Under the headline “the great energy of the Nordic remote”.
