A new kind of collaboration between media artists, musicians, museums and cultural organisations and children, in order to produce light and soundinstallation in public spaces. A 20 feet CSC proved container containing a media installation has been travelling between Greenland, Norway, Iceland and Denmark, along the sea-road since the beginning of 2016.
The container is equipped with media, sound and projection equipment, enabling us to project images from the container onto the existing environment in public space; rocks, ice and architecture. In combination with sound and music, we will create adventure projections in the dark, inspired by “The Spirit of Place” – in the light of the Nordic, Greenlandic roots & history.
Nordic and Greenlandic artist are invited to work together with children, who will gain both artistically and socially from the project. The artistic material will be taking on from place to place, from Qaanaq to Norway, from Iceland to Tasiilaq, in a great exchange, telling about the actual venue and the venues visited. Seeking for common denominators and contradictions.
Important part of the project are creative workshops for children and young people who are participating in the light and sound installation with their own work. ANERSAAQ – spirit of place, will in this way have both a cultural and social approach. The project will presents the installation in the public each place approximately 10 days. Finally presenting “the great energy of the Nordic remote” in Berlin and in Aarhus Culture Capital and in Berlin 2017/18.
