Katrine Elise Pedersen Journalist

Katrine Elise Pedersen (1988) is an art historian and curator based in Trondheim, Norway. She earned her MA in Art History at the University of Oslo (UiO). Her art historical research has often centred on (the exclusion or inclusion of) the body in performative contexts. Pedersen is curator and producer at Kunsthall Trondheim. Her curatorial practice has been oriented towards alternative realities, spiritualities, and knowledge systems as well as histories which seemingly have not been included in the main strains of official world narratives. Her writing includes texts on the work of artists such as Marte Aas, Pia Arke, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Oreet Ashery, Thora Dolven Balke, and Éva Mag, amongst others. She has recently contributed to the upcoming catalogue of Diana Policarpo – Nets of Hyphae, published by Mousse Publishing, Galeria Municipal do Porto, and Kunsthall Trondheim (2021). Pedersen is a member of the editorial board of The Norwegian Art Year Book in the period 2020-2023 and is a board member of The Norwegian Association of Curators 2021-2023.
