Girjegumpi is a spatialisation of conversations and research initiated by Joar Nango over two decades of practice at the intersection of architecture and art. As an itinerant, collective library, the project has evolved and expanded as it has travelled. Everywhere it stops, it involves numerous collaborations with architects, artists, and craftspeople.
Central to the project is the archive that it contains and shares – from rare titles to contemporary books, the collection of more than five hundred editions embraces topics such as Sámi architecture and design, traditional and ancestral building knowledge, activism, and decoloniality.
