North, in contrast, represents a classic look on the landscape: a monochromatic and minimalist arctic snow and a rocky landscape dialogue with the presence of twentieth century archeology. The traces of man vanish in the abstract lines of the powerful Arctic scenery. The Titan crane is an indistinct skeleton, the coal-fired power plant is a dark spot that blends with its surroundings, the mooring pylon of the Amundsen and Nobile airship is barely visible. And the little cemetery is nothing but a sign dominated by the slopes.
But, surprisingly, the touch of man is given by the matter of the clothes worn by 17th century workers and hunters – socks, hats and wool sweaters that, incredibly, have not suffered the deterioration of time: wool, now sewn directly into the plot of photographs. Landscapes: A series of chemigrams on Agfa Brovira photographic paper, with dimensions between 10.4 x 7.4 cm and 17.7 x 12.7cm. North: The series consists of 11 single-leaf silver gelatin prints, tacking, with woolen thread – mostly 51x72cm, with the exception of a 49x94cm and a 52x106cm.
