Kenji Yamada is an artist who carries out social practice and activities to share conﬂicts and paradoxes within international society. These conﬂicts and paradoxes emerge from application and misuse of ethnographical wisdoms, remains and modern heritages, including war ruins in a particular cultural area. He complexly questions undiﬀerentiated historical views and public interest by cooperating with citizens to publicize and reveal historical artifacts that have been buried by the construction of public spaces to society.
Kenji Yamada has exhibited at 3331 Arts Chiyoda, Tokyo; Yang Art Museum, Beijing; and Morgue Gallery, Chelsea College of Arts, London, among others.yamadakenji.org

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
