Just back from Mueffie/Mo i Rana in the
border area of South Sápmi and Upmeje Sápmi, I am pleased to present top a
wider public the exhibition there during the Sámi Church Days 9. – 11. August.
Anne Dalheim of the Sámi Church Council opened my exhibition on the UN
International Day of Indigenous Peoples. I was glad that about 70 people were
able to attend, despite the very packed program, and some 10 minutes walking
distance (much more, for those who do not know the way!). Naturally I also said
a few words, but here I more or less let the artwork speak their visual
language as best they can. However the best is to be there in person, so if you
have a chance, go to Helgeland Museum in Mo i Rana, the exhibition is there
until the end of August.
This is the first exhibition of mine
without graphic art, only paintings. They are all oil colour paintings on
cotton canvas, except for the frames and the outer parts of the installation
(Doors, table, masks, etc.). Apart from the portrait paintings, mostly done 7
years ago, the “Muittut” painting and carved wood painting (“Searching for father,
nr 11) all have been made specifically for this exhibition.
The exhibit is supported economically by the
Nordic Sámi Council, the Sámi Parliament of Norway and the Troms County Council.
It will re-open, almost unchanged, at Arran in Divtasvuodna on February 6th 2014!
