Marita Pappa (b.1988) is a Greek artist living and working in London. Her sculpture and installation works address the intimate in the political and the ambiguous terrain between private and public, aesthetics and politics. She is particularly interested in how forms and found objects carry personal and political significance, and how they navigate through history, language, and civic duty. She works in a variety of media, often arranging works together to create larger installations. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 2020. During her studies she became increasingly interested in sculpture’s political dimension and its possibility to shape society.
In 2020, she was selected as a recipient of the Leverhulme Trust Arts Scholarship for full tuition for her studies at the RCA. She was also awarded a NEON Foundation for Culture and Development scholarship for postgraduate studies from her home country, Greece in 2020 and in 2021.
