This series of videos expresses specific feelings that conflicts me and people around me when I talk about being from a such an isolated place as Greenland. My home country is rich in traditional live as hunting, being close to the nature and using everything around you as a tool as in having sleddogs. At the same time, we live a very normal life compare to the rest of the world with tv, modern clothing and a very normal consumer kind of life style. The work is composed of six videos that express different topics about the conflicts. 

The exhibition is a collaboration between the Iceland University of the arts (IUA) and the Nordic House in Reykjavík, conceived of as a contribution of the IUA to the Reykjavík Congress of the Universities of the Arctic (UArctic) network. The initiative is supported by grants from the Nordic Council of Ministers and from the Nordic Culture Fund.
