Collection: Britta Marakatt-Labba

Britta Marakatt-Labba was born in 1951 and grew up in a reindeer herding family in the Saarivuoma Sámi village. She began her artistic career in 1979 after completing her studies at the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg. Early on, she and other newly educated Sámi artists worked to build and establish a Sámi artists’ organisation.

Today, Britta lives and works in Övre Soppero and has been an active artist for over 40 years. Her major international breakthrough came in 2017 when her twenty-four metres long embroidery Historja was shown at the contemporary art exhibition Documenta 14. For her art and artistic accomplishments, she has received several awards and cultural prizes, including the Illis Quorum (2017), the Stig Dagerman Prize (2019), and the Prince Eugen Medal (2020). In 2022, she participated in the main exhibition of the Venice Biennale and in 2024, her large retrospective Sylkvasse Stygn will be shown at the National Museum in Oslo.
