 Explore the captivating exhibition by visual artist Outi Pieski at the TATE gallery in St. Ives. Delve into Pieski's profound exploration of identity, culture, and environment.

Outi Pieski, a Sámi visual artist hailing from Ohcejohka (Utsjoki), Finland, will present her inaugural large-scale exhibition in the UK.
Pieski's artwork, spanning paintings and installations, delves into various themes, notably the culture and identity of the Sámi people residing in the region of Sápmi, encompassing the northern parts of Scandinavia and the Kola Peninsula in Russia.

Central to many of her projects is the integration of duodji, the traditional craft practices of the Sámi, employing materials such as wood and textile. For Pieski, duodji serves as a means of rejuvenating connections between past and future generations.

Through this evocative exhibition, Pieski prompts contemplation on pressing issues including ancestral return, indigenous people's rights, and the intricate interplay between humans, animals, and nature.
