Guest Artist: A Conversation with Sissel M. Bergh
*This event will have integrated live captioning provided by VITAC*

Sissel M. Bergh is an artist from Southwest Sápmi/ Norway, working in cooperation with different kinds of knowledges. She realizes her work in different materials and techniques, perhaps mirroring the flexibility demanded by life along this coast. Through film, objects, paintings, drawings, text and interactions, she investigates how to relate to and understand the physical and invisible world(s): How to reread relations, land, memory, power, magic, and even art itself. In recent years she has focused on the internal logic of the South Sámi language, in order to understand the local landscape and environment, and to change the story about our past. In 2019 she was part of Gøteborg International Biennial of Contemporary Art. In 2020 she will be part of Nirin, the 22nd Biennale of Sydney. Recent solo exhibitions include “Okside rïhpesieh” (Doors opening) at Sámi Dáiddáguovdas in 2018. Bergh is educated at the National Academy of Fine Arts Oslo, and University of Technology in Durban, South Africa. She was based in Lusaka, Zambia for several years before she arrived in Tråante/Trondheim in 2009.
