Outi Pieski: Rematriation of a Ládjogahpir—Return to Máttaráhkká

6.2.-24.9.2023

The ládjogahpir, a popular and striking Sámi women’s hat in the 18th and 19th centuries; forbidden, forgotten, and disappeared in the 19th and 20th centuries; revived and revitalised in the 21st century.

The exhibition is part of an art and research project Máttaráhku ládjogahpir – A Foremother‘s Hat of Pride (2017-2020). The project is a collaboration between artist Outi Pieski and researcher Eeva-Kristiina Nylander (formerly Harlin). With their project they explore and make manifest the meanings and values of cultural artefacts―such as the ládjogahpir―for Sámi people, individually or personally and socially or collectively.

The exhibition Rematriation of a Ládjogahpir—Return to Máttaráhkká can be visited at the Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre Siida from 6th February 2023 till 24th September 2023.
