Around the Corner the Yoik of the Wind


Sven-Harrys Konstmuseum , Stockholm, Sweden

The exhibition Around the Corner the Yoik of the Wind offers an insight into a remote and yet proximate geographic and cultural landscape: Sápmi, or Lapland. Like the traditional Sami yoik song, which metaphorically embodies a particular person, animal, or landscape, the exhibition provides a counterweight to a simplified and often stereotypical way of depicting “the other.” The show features art , parts that combine to form an emotional whole, each made by Sami visual artists who give voice to a world that is complete—but mutable and elusive.
