Description

Book based on artist Joar Nangos’s video work of the same name.

In this video work by Sami artist and architect Joar Nango, the artist presents an aspect of a larger project first created in 2015 for the group show “A potential Architecture” at display at Ambika P3 gallery in London. Of this work, David Thorpe has explained, “As part of his research into the informal architecture of the Ger-districts in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Joar Nango visited the country a series of times and made the short film Nomads Won’t Stand Still for their Portraits from footage shot there. The film investigates the vernacular architecture of these areas as an architectural typology and includes footage of the production of large wall pieces for the traditional yurts made from felt. The felts were made in collaboration with a family-run felt-factory located in one of the Ger-settlements. Joar Nango is interested in the link between nomadic thinking and the collective logic and growth of urban settlements and sees his film Nomads Won’t Stand Still for their Portraits as an extension of previous works which deal with indigenous identity and temporary/nomadic architecture in different ways.”
