Louisiana poster with the work, Legende III, (1999), by the Greenlandic-Danish artist, Pia Arke, (1958-2007) published in connection with the exhibition, Pia Arke, Drøm og Fortrængning - the first major museum exhibition with Pia Arke. The work is part of Louisiana's collection and was shown in 2021 in the museum's exhibition series, Louisiana on Paper.
Pia Arke died early and did not get to experience the steadily increasing interest in her art, also on an international level. Arke made significant contributions to the staged photography, and she was the first artist to evoke images of the silence that characterized the history of Greenland and Denmark's colonial relationship.
Based on Danish colonial history and in her own life, Pia Arke documented places, kinships and dreams that were linked to her dual affiliation with Greenland and Denmark.
With the photograph, Arke staged himself at home in the apartment in Copenhagen. In tableaus with a large print of a Greenlandic landscape as a backdrop: The view from the childhood home in Narsaq. With a Danish father and a Greenlandic mother, Arke's dual affiliation became a driving force. Curious, humorous, but also with a critical stance, she investigated identity.
