The magic of making art fun again with Mimosa Pale
The one who created a Marie Antoinette-style headpiece made of shot glasses.
Art Stuff 11 Mar 2019

Mimosa Pale is unlike any other artist you know. The Finnish performance artist brings sculpture to life through colorful materials, dance and artworks inspired by the carnival, jazz and old fashioned side shows. You might have heard of her hat shop Himo, where she sold handcrafted hats she made in the Berlin’s district of Neukölln (long before it became hipster paradise).

Pale has also created technicolor, headbanging sculptures in Helsinki, leaf-blown a public monument she covered in fringes and once even. She is showing at the Stamp Festival in Hamburg, so watch out for her work. As the artist tells us: ”Art is for everybody, and everybody who wants can make it. The more people are encouraged to make art, the more interesting the world becomes. More people practicing self-realization in the form of art reduces stress and anxiety, makes you happier. So maybe it can be described as a social approach to art.”
