Eyes as Big as Plates were part of the Nuuk Nordic Culture Festival 2015. During Nuuk Nordic 2017 Eyes as Big as Plates will exhibit their art works created in Nuuk back in 2015.
Eyes as Big as Plates is the ongoing collaborative project between the Finnish-Norwegian artist duo Riitta Ikonen and Karoline Hjorth. Starting out as a play on characters from Nordic folklore, Eyes as Big as Plates has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging to nature. Since 2011 the artist duo has portrayed seniors in Norway, Finland, France, US, UK, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Sweden, Japan and Greenland.
