Porcelain Souls — Launch and signing with Inuuteq Storch
August 30, 2018
Join us for a signing of the new book project Porcelain Souls by Greenlandic artist and photographer IInuuteq Storch. With this new project, published by Konnotation Press, Storch shows a rarely represented side of Greenland—a country that has many layers and shows a versatile culture far from the stereotypical image often represented.
For Porcelain Souls, Storch has gone through his parents’ archives and found photos and letters from their lives in Greenland and Denmark in the 1960s and 80s. The photographs alternate between magnificent sceneries of the Greenlandic landscape as well as portraits of friends and family as the camera comes close. In the shift between the two photographic grips, Storch emphasizes the many different layers that life in Greenland contains. He refers both to the important link between people and nature, as well as to the strong feeling family unity, that exists through generations.
Photographer Inuuteq Storch grew up in Greenland in the 1990’s and most of his photographic work involves investigations of his nationality and cultural roots. Storch has studied photography at Fatamorgana in Copenhagen and at International Center of Photography in New York. He has published several photo books and his work has been exhibited in the US, Columbia, Greenland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.
