Hand mot Berg


How can the relation between human, time and place be understood in connection to the rock cycle and what happens when different perspectives are brought together and put in dialogue with one another? Blocks, gravel, sand and clay are all results from rock weathering and erosion. Processes so slow that they usually escape us in everyday life.

With a background as an Earth scientist, Gitte Berglöv explores nature’s building blocks and processes, often in relation to humans. Hand mot berg is a collection of works that explore human approach and interaction with the mountain and its matter. Through methods such as aerial photography, family archive, portraits and moving image the works make visible different perspectives on the mountain’s matter and how these are able to change depending on time, scale and distance.
