Biello jiedna – Art by Maj-Doris Rimpi

Today I have visited two exhibitions at Ájtte museum. The first showed the art of Maj-Doris Rimpi, an award-winning Sami artist working with many different kinds of materials. She displayed paintings, textiles, tin embroideries, wood and sculptures in beautiful combinations.

The opening of the exhibition had just ended when I arrived, and most people had left. But Maj-Doris herself was still there, so I got a chance to speak with her about the challenge of keeping focus on creativity in a world with a constant stream of new technology. She lives in Parenjárgga, a few kilometers west of Porjus, but her art has been seen all over the world.

The exhibition will be open until March 22nd, and is well worth a visit.
