This publication accompanies the exhibition Under the Vast Sky by renowned Sámi (Swedish) artist Britta Marakatt-Labba. (23 February - 29 May 2022)
The exhibition strikes a balance between iconic embroidered pieces and more recent and new works, including epic panoramas chronicling the history, culture and cosmology of the Sámi, the Indigenous population of the northernmost parts of Scandinavia. These will be combined with works inspired by the vernacular, the domestic, the intimacy of daily life; works engaging in the contested and urgent issues of our time including climate catastrophe and contemporary terrorism.
The publication, includes texts by the co-curator of the exhibition Jan-Erik Lundström, a curator, critic and historian of contemporary art, and former director of the Sámi Center for Contemporary Art, Karasjok, Norway.
Jonathan Watkins, Ikon Director and Linnea Axelsson, Sámi (Swedish) poet also contribute texts.
