Finnish artist Hanna-Maria Hammari (b.1986) graduated from the Städelschule in Frankfurt in 2017. Hammari was invited in August and September 2021 to the artist residency Moly-Sabata. Founded by the artist couple Albert Gleizes and Juliette Roche, Moly-Sabata is the oldest active artist residence in France located on the banks of the Rhône in Sablons, south of Lyon.
Hanna-Maria Hammari uses a great variety of materials in her work. She started her artistic career in photography and video, and later switched to ceramics and more tangible materials. She uses sculpture as a medium to address topics such as corporeality and relationships between human beings.
The project is organised with the support of the Institut Finlandais in a partnership with Moly-Sabata, Sillon and Exo Exo.
