Documenta 2017: Maret Anne Sara, Pile o Sapmi - A curtain made of 300 reindeer skulls. Sara is both: artist and political activist. She belongs to the people of Sami, an indigenous Finno-Ugric people living in northern Scandinavia. The installation intends to remind viewers on the struggle against the Norwegian government's culling of reindeers and disrespect of indigenous traditions. The reindeer is for the Sami an important part of their symbiotic way of living with the environment and their cultural identity. This curtain is also a reference to the Pile o' Bones in North American colonial history when the government extinguished the buffalos to get the indigenous people to leave their country.
