During the räkkä season, the reindeer form themselves into herds as then the number of insects per animal is reduced. The reindeer also move into wind-swept fell tops or to treeless mires. Animals become stressed by the almost constant onslaught of these insects and they risk losing so much blood that their life is endangered.

Opening on Friday 18 January 2019, from 5pm–7pm. Welcome!

How does this feel? A stitch on my scalp. It’s a sharp and filling pain that goes through my body like electricity, burning. It makes me mad, it fills me with irritation. After some hours, on my way back to the house I can barely think. I’m running, I’m fleeing.

For this project I stayed for 4 weeks in Mustarinda residency and went almost every day into the forest for a couple of hours.

Thanks to Jakob Johannsen, Ewa Górzna, Tomasz Szrama, and Mustarinda people.
