Masia Majakka’s (b. 1989) ceramic sculptures are essentially autofiction, based on personal experiences, things she has seen and done, human encounters. Her latest pieces abandon everyday realism and take a step closer to fantasy. The artist’s fondness for the ceramic medium stems from her respect for its time-honored traditions as well as her love of its immediacy, malleability, and wide aesthetic range.
Maisa Majakka (b. 1989) is a student at the Fine Arts Academy of Finland. She has previously held solo exhibitions at Helsinki’s ArTag Gallery and Copenhagen’s Ekely Gallery. Majakka has participated in many group exhibitions, including Vantaa Art Museum Artsi and MKC Gallery in Split. Her work is found in many private and public collections, including Vantaa Art Museum Artsi, the Päivi & Paavo Lipponen Foundation, and Helsinki Art Museum HAM. The artist is based in Helsinki.
