Imago Mundi, the global art project, dedicates a new collection to the great North of the American continent, amid tundra, ice fields, icy seas and rocky beaches. 140 works and the use of a surprisingly wide range of materials: from sealskin to soapstone, from seaweed to pastels, from caribou horns to walrus tusks. The result is a mosaic of small masterpieces concentrating all the creativity, talent, inventiveness and sensitivity of the Inuit artists - together with an authentic and original respect for traditional culture, the land and the fauna, and the passionate desire to express the reality of life today, with its overwhelming and inescapable modernity.
Land of Artic Ice. Contemporary Inuit Artists is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
