A rare opportunity to hear artist Britta Marakatt-Labba discuss her unique and captivating textile work together with Animalesque curator Filipa Ramos.

Britta Marakatt-Labba grew up in a family of reindeer herders. She studied art and textiles and in 1979 she joined the Sami Artists’ Group (1978–83). Primarily working with embroidery, Marakatt-Labba creates landscapes and miniature worlds. She weaves together the environmental, geopolitical and mythological history and cosmology of Sami culture. Her embroideries portray the landscape, daily life, rituals and struggles of the Sami people, who live across Northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. People, animals and deities are the main characters in her work.
