Outi Pieski is a visual artist whose paintings, collages, installations, and video works examine the identity and history of the Sámi people. Her work amalgamates the Sámi visual tradition of duodji and contemporary art practices. Duodji is a traditional way of collectively making items with your hands, and for Pieski duodji is also a way of dealing with responsiveness, honesty, and belonging. As well as, a means of remembering that we, as humans, are connected to all living things.
