Installation including hand-stitched and painted table cloth, prints, and writings
This installation reflected on contemporary contexts and highlights the voices of participants from the Arctic region. With the work, I encouraged the participants to engage in the beauty of the Arctic, both physically and psychologically. The participants wrote reflections about their aesthetic experience of the Arctic. The stories talk about atmospheres from different places, happenings and experiences, including memories and dreams. With my work and the participation of different individuals in the Arctic region, I want to place beauty on the pedestal it deserves and emphasise its important role in how we perceive our reality, our knowledge, our values, our well-being and the quality of our lives. I want to bring attention to how human interaction can further our understanding and practice of well-being with respect to the integrity of nature. During the exhibition, visitors were able to interact with the work.
