Oda Skaathun (b.1995, Norway) 

With a multidisciplinary approach spanning installation, performance, sculpture and drawing, her work is generally characterized by a naive, colorful and playful approach to feminist and existential thematic.

Her ongoing project «Kitchen Table Drawings» consists of a series of works that emerged from the artist engaging with limitations and changes. The work arose from the necessity, at the time, for a format fitting the artist’s role as a mother working from within the domestic sphere. «Kitchen Table Drawings» is partly a homage to women artists of the past, 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 experiences as a woman, mother and human being.
