Siberia-Chukotka, Russia 2015,

 

This project at the Russian Far East, namely the Siberian regions of Chukotka and Beringia, was inspired by local 
raven folk tales. The "Chukchi" people showed us "Yaranga", their tents out of the cities. On our way we saw Eskimos ancient 
housing made of whale bones. To the North pole and Arctic regions we took meat and bread as sacrificial 
offerings to nature and the ravens to thank them for their protection during the trip. 

There is a junction where the Arctic Circle crosses the 180th meridian. The latter runs vertically to set the basis 
for the International Date Line, which separates two consecutive calendar days.

* 極東ロシア、シベリアのチュクチ半島とベーリング海におけるこのプロジェクトは、現地のワタリガラスの神話にインスピレーションを得たものである。

 

ここには、国際日付変更線の基準となる経度180度の線、すなわちカレンダー上で連続する2つの日にちを分ける線が縦に走っている。

 

我々は、肉とパンを、自然とワタリガラスへの聖なる供物とし、旅の間の加護を祈った。
