Skaus is a nomadic art project, a hosting and occupying platform instigated by Håvard Sagen, Mari Kolbeinson, and Markus Bråten. Its existence relies on continual, therefore irreproducible, change. Accumulative by nature, Skaus is a support structure that instigates encounters between sites, artists, institutions, social infrastructures, and the audience. Skaus represents a multi-authored artwork that is not geographically anchored. It explores different forms of collaboration, working towards an informal and shared authorship.
Skaus has exhibited work at Rogaland Kunstsenter and TOU, all Norway, among others.skaus.site

Joani Tremblay investigates the perception of place through the relationship between landscape and its simulations and reproductions. Instead of painting from traditional observed landscapes, the artist assembles constructed ideas of a place from a variety of sources including advertisements, postcards, Instagram architecture influencers, social media, mass communications, and field researches. Tremblay assembles these images into digital collages to test hundreds of possibilities before applying paint.
Joani Tremblay has exhibited work at Harper’s Gallery, New York; Marie-Laure Fleisch Gallery, Brussels; and The Pit, Los Angeles, among others.joanitremblay.com
