Exhibition catalogue for the first major exhibition Pia Arke - Dream and Repression at Louisiana presenting the Greenlandic/Danish artist Pia Arke. The catalogue presents an anthology with Danish and international contributors that shed new light on Pia Arke's works: including author Kim Leine depicting life and death, artist Jessie Kleemann about the legacy of Arke and professor at University of Copenhagen Minik Rosing, who writes about spirit beings and the battle for Greenland.
The exhibition Pia Arke - Dream and Repression is part of the series Louisiana on Paper currently on show at Louisiana. Pia Arke (1958-2007) created significant contributions to the staged photography, and she was the first artist to evoke images of the silence that characterized the history of Greenland's and Denmark's colonial conditions. Despite an early death, Pia Arke is today considered a very important artist, who with 15 works is the second best represented artist in Louisiana's collection.
