second year BA students at Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art started
out their spring semester with a study trip to Finnmark with lectures
and seminars focusing on sami culture and traditional knowledge systems.
After the trip, the students have been working with
individual works questioning ideas and topics related to the trip, such
as, growing up in the northern parts in the world, what does "natural"
mean and what is not present in nature.
The students will
present their work or the process of their work at the sami culture
house, Árdna at the University Campus in Tromsö the 11th of March.
Later they will go back to Finnmark and Kautokeino to exhibit in the 10th of April at Diehtosiida.
