"Ever since I found the strange object on the shore I felt its power. They told me it was a Tupilak."
The backdrop for the story is the greenlandic Tupilak culture. It is though a completely artistic interpretation and has no documentary or fact-based relation to the Greenlandic Tupilak.
During the project I collected objects which I found on the shore in western Norway.
I brought these home, assembled them to installations and photographed them.
It was like an investigation: maybe some of the objects had been part of a former Tupilak and would form some kind of power when assembled?
