Catnosat – Indigenous Art, Knowledge and Sovereignty – The Sámi Pavilion
For the first time, Sámi artists will present their art and worldviews at the 2022 Venice Biennale as a sovereign call representing their homeland of Sápmi. The project for the Sámi Pavilion revolves around three key elements: transgenerational relations, holistic knowledge, and learning and spiritual perspectives. This book provides further reflections on Sámi art and knowledge in its consideration of Sámi notions of non-linear time and the centrality of storytelling, sound, and the spoken word. Its core features artworks by Pauliina Feodoroff, Máret Ánne Sara, and Anders Sunna.
