AN EXHIBITION TRAVELLING THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE 2022-2025
PERMANENT EXHIBITION IN GRANÖ 2025
ACROSS THE ARCTIC LANDSCAPE, culture and art has traveled effortlessly along with the movement of the wind, the sun and our reindeer herds, creating a network of Arctic Highways. Highways that are cultural and spiritual, real and thriving – but as invisible as the system of nation borders that have imposed their rigidness and weight upon us, pitilessly trying to nullify the free flow of ideas and identity connecting our souls.
WE, TWELVE INDIGENOUS ARTISTS from the Arctic region, ask you to join us in a search for answers and commonality, and a way across the frozen border between the two words us and them. Together we can start a journey on the Arctic highway of culture and life, that stretches from the past into the future – without ever passing a border.
WITH THIS EXHIBITION we want to tell our own story, through our own experiences, using our own forms of expression. We want to provide opportunities to think broadly about what it means to be unbounded, pointing to the limits of borders, not just for indigenous people, but for all of us.
