Field sketches

Brief description: The exhibition displayed selected works from various field studies carried out by the School of Northern design in Western Siberia, Yamal Peninsula and Polar Urals. The material culture of the indigenous peoples living in these regions was shown by means of art as sketches and drawings conveying natural dynamics and profoundly personal attitude to the objects depicted. These are stories about how the human potentialities could be expanded in an extreme environment: traditional things of Arctic residents are considered from the perspective of «superabilities» that these things give to their owners. The exhibition focused on displaying the following artifacts: a baby cot, a male belt, and a female bag.
