HISTORY

The story behind the artwork

The cemetery in the abandon village of Dundas. An entire Inuit community was forcibly relocated from here when the American Thule Air Base was built in the 1950s. Later a B-52-plane carrying atomic bombs crashed nearby, and according to local Inuits, contaminated the environment and wild life.
