Pam Skelton is an artist who lives and works in London and is a Reader in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Studied Painting at Camberwell College of Art and Design, and Theatre Design at the Design Course of the English National Opera.
In her work she often explores the problematic interface of private and public memory in East and West Europe. Working with digital video and still images, maps and texts, sites are asked to reveal secrets and places are understood as storage receptacles of past events where traces of histories are embedded. In the mid 80ís someone referred to her as a history painter and there is some truth in that view, particularly as her background is from painting. She attempts readings of specific spaces, places and events as a way of tapping into contemporary archaeologies, juxtaposing time and history, using methods that often draw upon sources outside of conventional art practices. She is currently collaborating with Cultural Geographer Jessica Dubow on the AHRC project Archive of Exile.
