Exhibition catalog for the first major exhibition Pia Arke - Dream and displacement on Louisiana with the Greenlandic/Danish artist Pia Arke, who is a standout in recent Danish art history. The catalog presents an anthology with Danish and international contributors who shed new light on Pia Arke's works: i.a. author Kim Leine depicts life and death, the artist Jessie Kleemann about the legacy from Arke and professor at the University of Copenhagen Minik Rosing writes about spirit beings and the fight for Greenland.
The exhibition Pia Arke - Dream and repression , which is part of the series Louisiana on Paper and which is currently on display at Louisiana, presents Pia Arke (1958-2007) and her significant works. Pia Arke made significant contributions to the staged photography, and she was the first artist to evoke images of the silence that marked the history of Greenland's and Denmark's colonial relationship. Despite an untimely death, Pia Arke is today considered a very important artist, and with 15 works, she is the second most represented artist in Louisiana's collection of recent art.
