Time for Sculpture #1 Muoras – árdnan at Alta Museum

Alta Museum in the period 03.06. – 10.10.2021


NB! The Exhibition periode is prolonged!


This exhibition is the first in a series of three ehibitions which examined sculpture and three-dimensional art, where each exhibition has a different focus. The exhibition was shown for thr first time in the winter of 2019 here in Karasjok and is later shown in Varangerbotn and Hammerfest. The exhibition has been well received by the public, which we hope will also happen at Alta museum.


Wood is one of the traditional materials in Sápmi and has a special significance in sculpture and duodji. Iver Jåks has a special significance in this context, as a significant artist, but also as an inspirer for future generations of sami artists. This exhibition is the first in the series that examines how Sami artists work with 3 dimensional works, object, sculpture and installation, and where they use different materials. The exhibition series are based on loans from RiddoDuottarMuseat-Sami Art collection in Karasjok.


Jon Ole Andersen, Folke Fjällström, Aage Gaup, Annelise Josefsen, Per Isak Juuso, Iver Jåks, Håvard Larsen, Max Lundström, Randi Marainen, Margrethe Pettersen, Maj-Lis Skaltje and Ingunn Utsi. With their respective unique artistic works, they are important voices on the Sami art scene. They live in different parts of Sápmi, both on the Swedish and Norwegian side and they all have an extensive activity to refer to.
