Join Martin Glover, a BSL (British Sign Language) user, on a guided tour of our current exhibition Pia Arke: Silences and Stories.


John Hansard Gallery, in collaboration with KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, presents the first major survey of artist Danish-Greenlandic Pia Arke (1958–2007) to be shown outside of Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland), and the Nordic countries.

Pia Arke was a Danish-Greenlandic visual and performance artist, writer and photographer. She is remembered for her self-portraits, landscape photographs, collage works and writing which strove to present the complex ethnic and cultural relationships between Denmark and Greenland.

The tour of Silences and Stories will be followed by a creative workshop led by Martin Glover. Refreshments provided.

Martin Glover is a Deaf Artist and Architect and an established BSL facilitator for galleries and museums.
