NIVA TO NENETS cooking pot

NIVA TO NENETS cooking pot: used to serve reindeer soup and to nourish conversations about the Niva to Nenets projects. For example used at the opening of the exhibition INVESTIGATIONS on artistic research, 26 May 2011 at DeFKA in Assen (Netherlands), and during the Situated Actions of PDC’18 at Z33 in Hasselt (Belgium).

Picnic blanket in Ittoqqortoormiit

Proudly showing my picnic blanket in Ittoqqortoormiit, East Greenland…

During a short stay in this lovely village I have added a seal made from local seal skin. Seal can be seen as the Greenlanders’ ‘daily bread’. If you notice how seals live a good life before they got shot to be eaten, it is almost impossible to feel sorry for them. They are very appreciated for their rich and healthy taste, and for their beautiful skin!
