Katri Paunu (b.1993) is a finnish artist based in Finland. She received her MFA from Oslo National academy of the Arts in 2021 and BFA from the Gerrit Rietveld academie (NL) in 2018.

Paunu's practice revolves around ceramics often combined with living materials such as fungi or yeast. This process involves looking into layered stories these materials convey and their intricate relation to senses. Her MFA- project 'The Probing Realm of the Other' explores these themes through combinations of yeast and amorphous fountain like forms. By letting the yeasts participate and create guidance for her works, she aims to give them a voice of their own in a playful way. Her artistic interest lies in the meeting point of architectural objects collided with the bodily; a search to form a deeper sense of our surroundings and fellow creatures.
