Sissel M. Bergh is an interdisciplinary artist / dáiddar, whose work centres on language and landscape, knowledge systems and relations to the surrounding world. As a part of her practice, she collects traces of Sámi culture on the coast of Møre and Trøndelag, to problematise and question the (in)visibility of the Sámi presence in the official narratives of these areas. How does the production of history influence our today and tomorrow?
