With the Fine Arts Academy of Finland's award exhibition in the Espoo Museum of Modern Art in autumn 2018, a solo exhibition in Oulu in spring 2019, and an exhibition and a series of events in the Finland pavilion in the Venice Biennale together with the Miracle Workers Collective, Outi Pieski is very busy these days. Pieski (1973–), based in Utsjoki and Mäntsälä, is known as a Sámi contemporary artist and activist who participates in the decolonisation of the Sámi culture and the discussion concerning the rights of indigenous people with her delicate, often ambiguous works.

The starting point of her paintings is, on one hand, the personally lived and experienced relationship with the Arctic nature of her home region and, on the other hand, the collectively shared stories, mythology and history related to its places. The biggest installation of the exhibition, Falling Shawls (2017), evokes a gathering of Sámi women, and has been created using a scarf-tying technique also used in the Sámi national costume together with many Sámi handicraft artists. Its abstract expression merges visions of fantastic landscapes and the traditional Sámi handicrafts, the duodji.

The exhibition has been produced in collaboration with EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art.

The title of the exhibition, Čuolmmadit, is in the Northern Sámi language and means "to tie many knots".
