Merete Røstad


Merete Røstad is a visual artist and curator whose projects are rooted in examinations of publics, collective memory, remembrance, and archives. Frequently engaging with public space and communities, her process-based practice explores our everyday exchanges with the histories inscribed in our surroundings, and how we come to read the traces that are left behind. Each of her works is developed through an on-going commitment to the inherent potential of spatial and temporal constructs to serve as catalysts for a deeper engagement with history, identity, and memory. Røstad lives and works in Oslo and Berlin and is currently an Artistic Research Fellow at the department of Arts and Crafts at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
