Sandrine Elberg – JÖKULL, la mémoire des glaciers

by Les Constellations


On August 18, 2019 in Iceland, a memorial plaque was unveiled in honor of Okjökull (officially decommissioned in 2014), the first disappearing glacier on the subarctic island. The monument A letter to the future was erected on the site of the former glacier marking the first fateful observation due to climate change in the world. On this plaque in gold lettering can be seen the words 415 ppm CO2, referring to the record level of carbon dioxide concentration recorded in the atmosphere in May 2019. According to researchers and scientists, Iceland loses about eleven billion tons of ice every year.

Those too fear the disappearance of 400 glaciers on the island within two hundred years if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate.
The photographic corpus JÖKULL is a tribute to the sublime, to the glaciers of Iceland with their faults, scars, whirlpools, mills and crevasses. The different views of the glaciers are erected under the moon and the starry skies of the island for an invitation to contemplation and reverie. This work contributes in a poetic way to the memory of the glaciers.
