FLAG is a collaboration between artist Gudrun Hasle and Nuuk Art Museum. We have invited different artists to create a flag for the flagpole at Holm’s House in the centre of Nuuk.
The flags are art works which at the end of the project will be gathered for an exhibition. The flag is hoisted in the morning and taken down in the afternoon.
There are national flags, football flags, maritime signal flags, prayer flags, and so forth. A flag has many meanings – there are flag flying days over the year, official flying of flags, flags for celebrations or for everyday occasions. When a flag is flown, something is being indicated or a communication occurs over distance. A flag can express an identity or a relation of belonging.
