Based on the Sami worldview, Grahn explores our relationship to, and ideas about, nature. In the Sculpture Park, she explores topics such as rituals, sacrifices and magic and fantasies of being in contact with the spirit of the forest. Through installations, with elements of dark humor and references to popular cultural, she encourages us to reflect on power relations, the future of the planet, and our own way of life.
I am interested in looking deeper into what role Sami cosmology can play in today's search for a more sustainable approach to nature and the earth's resources. Is it possible to imagine an animated nature and if so what would it mean for our modern lifestyle? (Carola Grahn)
