“It is paradoxical that the massive diffusion of images highlighting and raising awareness regarding pressing global threats should have failed to induce proportionate changes to our habits.” Salomé-Charlotte Camors considers our relationship with photographs: how they influence us and shape reality. Akunnaaq, mounted on raw steel, centres around a settlement in western Greenland. Its vulnerability to oxidation reflects the fragile state of the landscape. Camors adopts an activist, research-orientated approach; as ecological and social crises sweep the world, the artist engages with and empowers positive environmental action.
