    At: Galleri Image Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus, Danmark
    Galleri Image presents the exhibition Good Hope Keepers and The Mirrored Portraits of the Ocean by the Greenlandic artist Inuuteq Storch. Exhibition opening: 22 October 4-6 pmThe exhibition juxtaposes 19th century Greenland with the Greenland of today. In
    uuteq Storch’s own contemporary photographs of his hometown Sisimiut (from the upcoming book Keepers of the Ocean) are presented alongside the archival project Mirrored - Portraits of Good Hope, where he has gotten a hold of photos by Greenland’s first photographer John "Ujuut" Møller from the period 1889-1935.To Inuuteq Storch, the two series of artworks in the exhibition are a part of a larger effort to promote Greenlandic self expression and postcolonial consciousness about national pride and identity. The exhibition connects the works of the two Greenlandic photographers over a period of more than 100 years and explores the development of the geographic identity as seen from the perspective of its people. Inuuteq Storch grew up in Greenland, where the landscape and weather is dominant and where nature rules over life’s rhythms. But the stories being told about life in this landscape have historically been influenced by Danish travelers, whose views on its nature and its people have affected how they have been portrayed. In Storch’s art he is searching for his own visual narrative, as well as that of other Greenlandic people: How do the images look, when they come from within and not from the outside?The book, Inuuteq Storch: John Møller - Mirrored, Portraits of Good Hope published by Roulette Russe, will be launched at the opening of the exhibition.Inuuteq Storch at Photobook Week AarhusInuuteq Storch curated an exhibition at Galleri Image during Photobook Week Aarhus, which took place 14-17 October. The exhibition Eye to Eye - Photobooks and Zines from Greenland is still on display at Galleri Image and shows photobooks from Greenlandic and international artists and tells a story about Greenland in pictures seen from the perspective of the Greenlandic people.Symposium: Gazes on GreenlandIn conjunction with the exhibition, we will present the symposium Gazes on Greenland, where different points of view on art from and about Greenland will be discussed. The symposium will take place at The Greenlandic House Aarhus. The symposium is arranged by Galleri Image, Art Weekend Aarhus and ASSINGA, which is a collaboration between rum46, Nuuk Art Museum and Aarhus Feminist Collective.
