Outside the Institute, however, plenty of Finnish artists have made their way into the spotlight. Such is the case with Pauliina Pöllänen, who was selected as the Victoria and Albert Museum Ceramic Resident Artist. She started her residency in April of this year, in the hopes to use the physical history of the Arts and Crafts movement in the museum as an inspiration.
The program, organised by the Museum, has provided previous residents with the opportunity to secure gallery representation and winning awards. Pauliina has been previously showcasing her work worldwide in important museums in Norway, the USA, amongst others. However, she plans on making an impact in the arts in the United Kingdom.
