Olof Marsja (1986, Gällivare) works with sculptural expressions that analyse and blend uncannily the ultra modern contemporary digital reality and pop culture with history and traditions connected to his Sámi heritage and Duodji (Sámi craft). Crafts and materials are central in Marsja’s research and his works are deeply marked by the plurality of practical knowledge and references that characterise the hybrid forms with which he seriously and humorously analyses questions of history, the contemporary world and identity. Marsja has an BfA from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts & Design in Stockholm (2017) and was a recipient of the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Stipend in 2019. He was exhibited at Göteborgs Konsthall (2020), Bonniers Konsthall (Stockholm, 2019), Steinsland-Berliner Gallery (Stockholm, 2019), Luleå Biannual (2018) among others and he is about to have his first solo institutional exhibition at the Sámi Centre for Contemporary Art (Karasjok, 2021) and to be featured in an important survey at Rösshka Museum of Arts and Crafts (Gothenburg, 2021). Olof Marsja lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.
