Merete Røstad is a visual artist and curator working with publics, remembrance and archive. Her practice concerns the perception of our everyday exchange and experiences within our surroundings, one aspect of this being how we read the traces left behind. Frequently engaging within public space and communities, Røstad’s process-based practice has developed out of a rigorous interdisciplinary practice in both, her academic and professional, life in Norway and Germany. This has included an on-going commitment to explore the potential of spatial and temporal constructs as a catalyst for engaging with history, identity and memory. Røstad lives and works in Berlin and Oslo and is currently an Artistic Research Fellow at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
