About the event

Fridman Gallery is pleased to invite you to New York based visual and performance artist Jaanika Peerna’s monograph launch, Glacier Elegies (Terra Nova Press/ MIT Press 2022). The event will be on Saturday, June 4 at 6pm. The event consists of performance followed by the artist lead conversation inviting guests to reflect on her question: “ What would you do if you were handed the last piece of natural ice left on Earth?” Glacier Elegies is an in-depth look at Jaanika Peerna's iconic work through essays, images of works and performances, and the artist's own words. 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 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. Books will be available for purchase at the event. Jaanika Peerna bio More on the book
