An ongoing project by Finnish and Norwegian artists, that began as a play on characters from Nordic folklore but has evolved into a search for modern humans’ belonging to nature. Since 2011 the series has portrayed seniors in Norway, Finland, France, US, UK, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Sweden, Japan, Greenland, Czech Republic, South Korea and, in 2019, the Western Isles. Each image in the series presents a solitary figure in a landscape, dressed in elements from surroundings that indicate neither time nor place. Characters literally inhabit the landscape wearing sculptures they create in collaboration with the artists.
