Marita Isobel Solberg was raised in Manndalen in Northern Norway a valley where Sami, Kven and Norwegian cultures live side by side. She lives and works as a musician and visual artist with Tromsø as a base and crosses artistic expressions using installation, sound, performance, photography and sculpture in a meeting between fantasy and reality, time, malice and naivety.
Her work is close to Sapmi and Sami culture and has an autobiographical undertone through which where she tells vivid stories. She often performs with her band Maras. Marita Isobel Solberg was an Artist in Residence at The Performance Studio in 2012. She will be presenting a new performance especially devised for The Performance Studio.
