  • About the artwork

    "I traveled to Greenland at the beginning of 2013, staying with the local inhabitants of the towns and the northernmost dwellings I encountered. I journeyed from 67° to the 77th parallel north until Qaanaaq, with the aim to highlight the current mutations.From the front-row seats the country undergoes the effects of climate changes, and witnesses deep transformation of the society since the latest decades: the modification of the environment thus operates along with a growing openness to "western" lifestyles and consumption habits.

    The questions surrounding Greenland extend far beyond its geographical frontiers.In these starkly different landscapes, supermarkets and cell phones are slowly making their way into Inuit culture, and traditional outfits made from animal hides are now only used in the North for sled journeys.

    These radical and rapid changes raise questions about society and identity, and divide public opinion in Greenland, as illustrated by the last elections. Its people are torn between a desire to catch up with the modern world, and a feeling that they are an ice population which, like the ice itself, is slowly melting away."

Sébastien Tixier

Born in: 1980

France

Sébastien Tixier is a self-taught photographer born in 1980, living in Paris. He captures scenes to which he alone holds the secret. With the strange and delicate light of twilight or dawn, the photographer immortalizes both dreamlike scenes and vast urban and natural landscapes. His series "Stories of ordinary life" and "What remains of our dreams" give us a mysterious and erotic glimpse of women placed in settings inspired by the colours of the sky. The photographer is also talented at landscape photography. In "Allanngorpoq" he provides an overview of the Greenland’s magnificent landscapes as well as shots of the changing society as it has felt the influence of westernization. His works have been received with numerous prizes, he obtained the FEPN Author Grand Prix in 2009 and the Gold Award at the Px3 Awards in 2011 and 2013.
