Shanna Miruna

Shanna Miruna (b. 1995) is a Romanian born artist based in Helsinki. Her debut book Found objects (2022), is a semi-autobiographical bundle of genre-bending prose and poetry, and its publishing was accompanied by Shanna’s first ever solo show of the same name.

Much of Shanna’s work is inspired by the deep longing and grief felt keenly only by the children of immigrants. With each story, she attempts to carve space for herself, for her sisters, her mother, to find a place to belong when one feels as if they belong nowhere.
