My name is Ap Verheggen, sculptor and filmmaker. I am highly fascinated by the worldwide communication in stapled stones. For that I visited in winter 2006 Nunavut to explore the Inukshuik: a symbol for the Canadian Arctic Culture. I documented and filmed as much as possible forms. Attracted by the Inuit culture I did many interviews and noticed their feeling of getting stuck between two cultures.
Back home in Europe I became aware that not many people know anything about the Inuit and their culture in general. To change that I developed some ideas: I produced a documentary: “The Road to Nowhere”, showing the fast change of Inuit traditional culture and initiated many art activities to start a discussion.
The footage recorded in Nunavut I now use for sculpture/video art
With all my actions I notice that more and more people get interested in Arctic cultures and IPY. Art is a good medium to get peoples attention on these matters.
