Owed to the Fog    




“It was owing to the fog that night came upon him.”
Owed to the fog is a family of containers aimed to exist one within the other. Shading from white to dark, these pieces are a ceremony dedicated to local climate variations: light, mist and darkness. Made out of seal guts and seal skin, they investigate the particular process of hand sewing techniques used in the making of the traditional Greenlandic costume. Collaboration with Simon Ballen and Kittat (Sara Marie Lyberth, Johanne Markussen and Hanseenaaraq Petersen ¨Nukannguaq).
