Sieidevárri [Sacrificial mountain] (2016)

Inflatable mountain

Part of Markomeannu Sámi Music Festival 28 – 31 Aug 2016 (link)

“The visible, physical mountains still rise in the visible landscape, but in many places, the invisible, sacred mountains as well as the invisible landscape have disappeared. The connection between the visible and invisible reality is no longer functioning. The narratives have to be told to maintain and confirm ideas about the world, and to give continuity to the knowledge and perception of the invisible reality.“

– Marit Myrvoll, Gosa bássi várit leat jávkan? Where have all the sacred mountains gone?
