(b. 1995 Bergen, Norway)
Skaathun works between Spain and Norway. She received her BFA from the National Academy of the Arts in Oslo in 2019.
With a multidisciplinary approach spanning installation, performance and drawing, her work is generally characterized by a naive, colorful and playful approach to feminist and existential thematics.
Her ongoing project “Kitchen Table Drawings” consists of a series of works that emerged from the artists engaging with limitations and changes. The work arose from the necessity, at the time, for a format fitting the artist´s role as a new mother working from withing the domestic sphere. “Kitchen Table Drawings” is partly a homage to female artists, and partly a diary entry.
The format is made to fit the kitchen table, and thus, directs us to spaces traditionally occupied by women. In her interiors, she is interested in creating a world free from the male gaze by drawing from her experience as a woman, mother, and human being.
