Maja Bekan’s work explores and questions mediation and delegation of artwork production. She is interested in a collaborative and social approach to explore personal histories, truths, economies and social relations. Bekan works on long-term research-based projects that involve different levels of collaboration, presented to the public in the form of performances, site-specific environments, and video/audio/text-based installations.

Skaus is a nomadic art project, a hosting and occupying platform instigated by Håvard Sagen, Mari Kolbeinson, and Markus Bråten. It’s 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
