ARTIST TALK – Inuk Silis Høegh and Jacob Kirkegaard
Meet the visual artist Inuk Silis Høegh (GL) in conversation with sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard (DK) on the film installation The Green Land
Sunday 11. June 2023, at 15.00
Inuk Silis Høegh’s magnificent The Green Land can be experienced at Nordatlantens Brygge from 10. June to 10. September.
During the recording of The Green Land Inuk Silis Høegh invited the sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard to collaborate. As Inuk Silis Høegh needed to entrust the sound of his film to another artist with challenging perspectives, no one better for the task is Jacob Kirkegaard, whom have recorded sound from everything in-between Greenland’s ice cap, Trump’s wall in Mexico, dead bodies and landfills.
How did the collaboration develop between an artist with a loss of hearing, and a sound artist’s microphone recording the almost inaudible. How did they in collaboration find the right balance between image- and sound narration?
The talk will take about 45 minutes with time for Q&A.
Note: The talk will be in Danish.
Tickets also give access to the house’s current exhibitions.
