Today I’m the happy receiver of a grant from the Arts Council Norway, not a large sum – but enough for some extended traveling. The Arctic is still out of reach, but a trip to London, Berlin, New York or Tokyo …?
Tiina Itkonen: House, Kullorsuaq
I will spend the money on buying myself some time, and my time I will spend on creating the outline for a book. Then, hopefully, I can get some more funding for seeing the work through to publication …
Tiina Itkonen (born in 1968) graduated from the Helsinki University of Art and Design in 2002 and currently lives and works in Helsinki. She has made several visits to Greenland and found a sustained motif there. In 2011 Itkonen took part in the Venice Biennial’s Real Venice exhibition.

Congrats! Beautiful photo.
Yes & thank you!!!
Congratulations! I’m sure the travel experience will enhance your writing. (:
Congratulations! Time for a trip to Akureyri?
Akureyri might be a little bit too crowded for me, I mean: if I am to go further north, my plan is to get lost in the wilderness – not in a university-town … but then, after being found Akureyri might be just the right place to stay?
how exciting, congratulations!
Absolutely wonderful! Looking forward to both book and posts.
Thank you Karen, it is a privilege have been granted!
Wonderful news! I’ve been out of touch, but this is great news to come back to. Congratulations, and all the best!
Thank you so very much! Have you been doing anything exciting?
No, quite the opposite – some big changes at work, and at home, I’m afraid….I hope things will settle in the next few months so I can get back to my writing…
– so do I!
All the best!
