Sami Center for Contemporary Art welcomes to opening of Exhibition/Installations “Rájácummá – Kiss from the Border” and “Válddis, veahkaválddis, ráhkesmeahttunvuođas ja ráhkesvuođas – Of power and violence; lovelessness and love” on Friday 20/9 2019 at 19:00! The two exhibitions are kickoff for the weekend seminar A Greater Miracle of Perception: The Kárášjohka Iteration.
“Rájácummá – Kiss from the Border”
The exhibition/instalation is an environmental community Art Work by Niillas Holmberg, Jenni Laiti and Outi Pieski. This artistic work questions a local Sami self-government, while at the same time encouraging us to live together in peace with our earth, where the interaction is formed in collaboration with how humans, the earth and the river can live together for the benefit of our nature also in the future. The border crossing argues with decolonist visions, about new but at the same time former self-government for areas where the past and the future meet.
