«Hors Pistes takes off for a third residency program. We will soon be in Nuuk to discover Greenlandic handicraft.Greenland is an island with limited natural resources and a harsh climate. The artisanal techniques take into account geographical constraints. The Inuit culture is very much connected to its land. The craftsmen find their inspiration in nature and mostly work with materials such as stone, wood, soil, wool, skin and bones of hunted animals (e.g. seal and reindeer). The Inuit crafts developed accordingly to the nomadic traditional lifestyle, alongside with the hunting and fishing practices but also to the animist beliefs. Hors Pistes will invite 6 designers and an editorial team composed of 2 members for this residency program in Nuuk.»
