Joar Nango

2022 Program & Exhibition Artist

Joar Nango (Sámi, born in 1979, Áltá, Norway; lives and works in Tromsø, Norway) works with site-specific installations and self-made publications that explore the boundary between architecture, design and visual art. His work relates to questions of Indigenous identity, often through investigating contemporary architecture. Joar has explored modern Sámi spaces through the self-published zine Sámi Huksendáidda: the Fanzine, the design project Sámi Shelters and the mixtape/clothing project Land & Language. He is a founding member of the architecture collective FFB and is currently setting up a network of Sámi architects across Sápmi through the ongoing Indigenous architecture library project.
