Suhrke/Skevik was founded in 2011 by Hilde Skevik and Ellen Henriette Suhrke, both visual artists with their background from Bergen National Academy of the Arts. The duo is currently based in Oslo and Copenhagen. Suhrke/Skevik focuses on body language and symbolic gestures in a dialogue without words, where the interaction between the two artists play a vital role. Their starting point is often a playful action which they aestheticize to the point where it becomes ritualistic, poetic or absurd. The duo have produced a series of video, performance- and photographic works. They have received several grants and awards, including Anne and Jacob Weidemann stipend, and have participated in numerous exhibitions and performance festivals in Norway and abroad.
