Description

This set of texts and photographic postcards is the result of a three-year project called The Indigenuity Project.

The Indigenuity Project is a project by artists Joar Nango and Silje Figenschou Thoresen. Beginning in August 2010, the artists began a journey through northern parts of Finland, Sweden and Norway to examine the concept of indigenuity, the local and indigenous ingenuity in everyday design. The aim of the project is to discuss and investigate the local and vernacular design tradition, in connection with the need of a more sustainable and sensible use of resources. Producing a travelling exhibition with this theme, the artists present the regions creative makeshift constructions, both to the inhabitants of the region and to people elsewhere.

Joar Nango is an architect with a Norwegian-Saami background. At the moment he is working at NTNU in Trondheim. Since 2007 Nango has been writing, editing and publishing “Sami Huksendaidda:the FANzine” as a part of his ongoing research on contemporary Saami architecture.
