Margrethe Pettersen

Agálašvuoðajurdda

Margrethe Pettersen’s works often combine botanical, historical and mythological approaches. She usually works with narratives of plants or growths, and her works relate to the site, area or its people. Word ‘agálašvuodajurdda’, which is formed by using plants, means the idea of eternity in the Sámi language. The work utilizes only edible plants such as berry bushes and herbs, and the artist wishes that people would pick and use them.
