Art and Craft Lectures: Joar Nango

Joar Nango on his art and work on Sami architecture.

I will talk about some projects I have done as an artist and architect. I have worked a lot with the concept of Sami architecture, a rather undefined term that has opened many interesting doors in relation to large and important topics for me. For example, how is the fellow history written through architecture, and how can traditional forms of knowledge act as guides to a new and more site-sensitive architecture?

Joar Nango is an architect and artist based in Romsa/Tromsø, Norway. Through building, site-specific interventions, design collaborations, photography, publications, and video, his work explores the role of Sámi and Indigenous architecture and craft in contemporary thought. In 2023, was presented at the Nordic Countries Pavilion at the 18th International Venice Architecture Exhibition with Girjegumpi: The Sámi Architecture Library, a nomadic, collaborative library put together over the last fifteen years. His work has been exhibited at Documenta 13, the Chicago Art Biennal, the National Gallery of Canada, and in 2020 he was a festival artist during the Bergen International Festival, to name but a few of his latest exhibitions.

The lecture will be held in English.
