Residency programme.
The ongoing project “Residence-in-Nature” (2018-2019) is run by Norrbottens museum in collaboration with artists Åsa Jungnelius and Lisa Torell. The residency, based in Lainio, considers the artist-in-residence as a starting point, a developer of working methods within a sparsely populated geographical site. It is an artist-driven experiment using a 1:1 scale: we invite art practitioners from different disciplines and backgrounds to live side by side and work in peculiar and specific environments.

Norrbottens museum has two headquarters: the exhibition spaces are located in the city centre of Luleå, while the archives (documents, images, artworks, etc..) are in Björkskatan's neighbourhood. Both of them are well connected by public transports.
