Icebride # 3

Kirsten Justesen. Icebride # 3, 1980.

Description:
Ed.7. The last image in a series of 3. When translated into Danish, the title ISBRUD/ICEBRIDE pulls in opposite directions. ISBRUD/ICEBRIDE – ‘ISBRUD’ – retains its English connotations, but can also mean "Breaking of the Ice." This is from an event in Greenland 1980 as the first of, so far, 15 MELTINGTIMES over the years performed in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Canada and New York, using various media. A metaphor for transformation - a dialogue with time.
