One day in November, the weather was terrible. We usually have dry snow in November, but it was wet snow this day. It was challenging to go skiing. - 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. 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 she will show an extensive retrospective exhibition at the National Museum in Oslo, Norway.
