So close, but distant

Is the river a border of connection or of separation? Pictured is Reetta Tornensis - embraced by her own arms, her self-made Gákti, and the land so familiar to her, she feels simultaneously connected, but separated from home. The COVID-19 made the borders dividing Sápmi more concrete than ever before during her lifetime, as she is hindered from visiting her family by a line running through a continuous landscape and heritage. During Corona, we have been reminded how precious freedom and community are, and how important it is to have nature and the arts to soothe our solitude.
