The title "Saperasi isumaqaleritsi" may be recognizable to some. It is the last sentence from the last verse of the Greenlandic national anthem "Nunarput, utoqqarsuanngoravit".


In the title of this exhibition, Seqininnguaq has strategically chosen to use it as a background for the works that explore incidents from the beginning of the history of Greenland to the present day, which through the use of helping spirits, legends and myths can help to heal the trauma behind these incidents.


The colonization of Greenland, the Experiment, the closing down of Qullissat, the spiral campaign and similar traumas that are visited by myths, legends, tupilaks and helping spirits to help give understanding and healing to the affected, the witnesses and the population. As well as a presentation of the slightly more unknown myths and legends which are therefore meant to symbolize how you can get up and fight on despite some horrible incidents.
