PAINTINGS OTHER PROJECTS NORTH BIO CONTACT
My research is based on the interaction of North and my artistical work. I open the Nordic aspect through participation of everyday life and supporting livelyhoods is part of my work. I am fascinated by the authenticity of the reindeer herding and its strong relationship with the nature. Life in the North also clearly illustrates the conflicts of modern life and old traditions. My work includes painting and building installations. Materials for installations are mainly collected from the hills and reindeer butchery.
I have taken these photos in Galgon gobba on Båssovarri, Gálggojávri, Baikaboldnin joen latva, Hetta, Karigasinemi, Namakka and Oikijärvi during the period 2008–2010.
