"Have you ever seen an iceberg under the rain ?"
Centre de la Photographie, Genève
Curation by Danaé Panchaud


Here, the Arctic reeks of death. During her first encounter with the far north, in Qaanaaq, the northernmost town of Greenland, Anastasia Mityukova measured the distance that separates the Western imagination of the Arctic Circle from its reality. Accepting the preconceived nature of her perception of this region, despite several years of research into its geopolitical issues, she first set out to film and photograph the bleak reality of life near the North Pole. Her images document the monotonous and austere daily life of a fishing and hunting village, with a precarious economic situation, a territory that is more often muddy than snowy, very windy and invaded by stray dogs rather than polar bears.

Back in Switzerland, she looked at the origins of her representations of the Arctic, through the books, images and documentary films that have shaped them since her childhood. They are populated by archetypal polar wildlife, western conquests and traditional ways of life that have all but disappeared, and the pristine landscapes covered in glistening ice that we all know. 

Through her installations, which combine methods of information gathering, comparison, writing and discussion with the local Inuit population, the artist proposes questions about how the collective Western imagination is formed around the northern landscape.

This project was made possible by a documentary grant from the City of Geneva.


I'm very joyful to announce that Villa Merkel, Galerie der Stadt Esslingen (GER) just acquired the work Disappearing act, 2022 for their collection. Big thank you to Anka Wenzel, head curator and the board of the institution for making that happen.

The end of the year is a time of year for remembrance. We take stock of where we came from, and have a moment to think about where we are going, as we pursue the future with hope. May 2023 be all that you hope for, and may it be sprinkled with love and friendship.
