RAABJERG takes outset in the changing landscape of northern Jutland (DK). The landscape changed due to climatological changes and human resource extraction, and the following attempts at ‘restoring’ and ‘reestablishing’ a ‘natural’ landscape.

The narrative pivot point is the violent sand drift in the 16th-19th centuries; how it manifested itself and completely transformed the once fertile landscape into a barren wasteland. Different governments – from kings to elected parliaments – enacted laws tried to reverse it. After 200 years, they ‘succeeded’ in re-transforming the landscape back to a controlled state, especially suited for tourism.

However, today, the dune landscapes are considered ‘natural’, and conservation efforts are now directed at preserving these. Obviously, any landscape is in a state of constant transition, and these efforts then beg the question: How do you preserve transition?

The project RAABJERG of Danish artist Rune Peitersen consists of a publication and a film. The film will premiere at the Biennale für Aktuele Fotografie in Mannheim (DE) in March 2022.
