Olof Marsja (b.1986, SE), took his exam from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts & Design in 2017, and currently based in Gothenburg. He work with sculptural expressions that emphasize material and the figure as a critical way of thinking in the era of digitisation and dematerialisation. The process of making holds a prominent position in his practise and the trace of the hand is always visible whether it is in the chiseled wood, blown glass or the roughly chainsawed wood. When assembling man-made and organic material with the exquisite crafted to sculptures he draw inspiration from his background in Duodji, Sami craft, everyday life, medieval art, comics and myths. Using a wide range of materials and techniques is also a method to elude categories such as good and bad, tradition and contemporary, finished and unfinished. It is an exploration that seriously and humorously plays with issues of identity, history and our contemporary situation.
