GLACIER ELEGIES

Much  of Jaanika Peerna's recent work is a lament to glaciers and natural  ice. Her ongoing project Glacier Elegy forms the central core of this  publication. The book presents an in-depth look at this iconic work,  through essays, images of works and performances, and the artist's own  words. In doing so, it shows how a contemporary artist in her prime addresses the climate emergency.

The book touches on ecological  grief and looks at how Peerna and other key contemporary artists have used the subject of  ice to highlight the global climate emergency. It includes essays by  Robert MacFarlane, Janet Passehl, Celina Jeffrey, and an interview by  Joana Nevers, situating Peerna's work and envisioning how creative acts  imagine ecological relations in the face of rapidly changing climates  and environments, giving voice to the difficult emotions of fear,  trauma, grief, and mourning. Peerna's work offers us a way through.
