About the artist
Born in1981 in Stockholm, Sweden, and now based in Oslo, Norway, Katinka studied in Sweden and France, and was J.H. Engström’s assistant. In 2008 she graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art. She has had a number of exhibitions both in Norway and abroad: in Japan, the United Kingdom, Sweden and at the Voies Off festival in Arles in 2007. “Surfacing” is about the relationship between her and her mother, exploring the atmosphere of their relationship, what happens between them and what doesn’t.
