Luis Nobre (Portugal)

Drawing constitutes Luis Nobre’s priviledged medium both in terms of representation and probing of the world through the overlapping of layers and resulting vibrations that arise from the tensions of the line. In a world that is fragmented, the artist’s use of line as a sociological and historic memento of nature creates ‘cinematographic travellings and […]

Yu-Chin Tseng (Taiwan)

Moira Ricci (Italy)

Moira Ricci (Italy). Central to Moira’s work is the world of family relationships, and the family home as the natural area in which these relationships are played out. Putting aside her own emotions, Ricci turns her own personal narrative into fertile ground for thinking about the world we live in and translating this into her photography and video.

Kuba Bakowski (Poland)

Kuba Bakowski (Poland). Themes of overcoming gravitation and the exploration of physical limitations of one's body mark Kuba’s diverse body of work. As he investigates the confrontation between the real world and the artificial world generated by digital media, his approach is part utopian, part ironic, and is tinged with a perverse sense of humor.

Nayda Collazo-Llorens (United States)

Nayda Collazo-Llorens (United States) Nayda’s work in multiple media deals with issues of communication, accumulation and displacement. A combination of text, marks, objects, images, gestures or sounds are often structured in a nonlinear manner. The work invites the viewer to reflect on the complexities of mind, language and the fragmented nature of our lives through a process of perceiving and understanding what is inside and around us.

Mayumi Nakazaki (The Netherlands)

Mayumi Nakazaki (The Netherlands) Mayumi refers to herself as a product of “Japanese-style Westernization”. She is interested in the notion of the “self that exists and interplays in between parallels”. Her practice is a balance between creating fiction out of reality and trying to elevate reality to the rank of narrative. She focuses on sociological and ethnological issues with subjects that deal with disguise, uniformity, identity, gender and more recently with behavioural and conversational patterns between people.

Yuki Okumura (Japan)

Yuki Okumura (Japan) Artist, writer and curator, Yuki Okumura probes the concept of identity and what makes the human “mind” and “self” unique. More recently, his art practice has expanded the realm of body art through the creation of discrete and precious works constructed from fingernails and saliva. Clearly intended to provoke, they retain a “trace of self” and exploit the uneasy tension between animate and inanimate. Another focus of investigation for Yuki is the development of connections between the banality of every day life with quantum theories, supernova explosions and the sublime.

Isabelle Ferreira (France)

Isabelle Ferreira (France) Isabelle’s work seems to prevail within that unlikely calm preceding the breaking storm. Her videos and sculptures - on occasion performance and installations- appear to leave time at a loose end: gesture and motion are slowed down and hidden rhythms revealed.

Geka Heinke (Germany)

Geka Heinke (Germany) Geka’s paintings depict everyday objects, such as wallpaper, lamps, floors and curtains. Isolated from their usual surroundings, the focus is on the serial structure of the objects and the tension that arises between spatiality and ornamental flatness. As perception and a layered reading of different spaces are simultaneously engaged, the artist’s loose, free-flowing technique guides the viewer into the depths of illusionistic space. Above all, the works transmit Geka’s viewpoint that our understanding of the world is ever more complex despite rapid technological and analytical advancement.

Kaori Tazoe (Japan)

Kaori Tazoe (Japan) Kaori Tazoe’s recent mixed-media works explore the role of theater and entertainment in people’s lives. From 1995 to 2002, she collaborated with artist/fashion designer Junko Ito in “Suit”, a series of conceptual art projects exploring the relationship between the individual and the collective mind, and the ways that the act of wearing a uniform affects both the individual and the group.

Jani Ruscica (Finland)

Jani Ruscica (Finland) Ruscica is an artist and filmmaker whose body of work reflects a deeply humanistic approach as it unravels culturally specific histories, both from a personal and collective perspective. He also favors creative collaboration in the development of his work.

Juei-Hsien Hsu (Taiwan)

Ruey-Hsiaan Hsu (Taiwan)

Ruey-Hsiaan Hsu uses mechanical elements as a creative medium. He builds technically complex and conceptually sophisticated “machines” whose motions are activated by the audience and stimulate memories and emotions. Exploring the ways in which sound, images, and new media might be used to extend the language of his work are a new development.

Teresa Henriques (Portugal)

Teresa Henriques (Portugal). Henriques’s work revolves around the understanding of the concept of “Perception”. The guidelines of her research are defined by drawing, geometry, philosophy and optical phenomena. The resulting body of work consists of drawing machines and contemplative objects in space highlighting the relationship between artwork and human body.

Krist Gruijthuijsen (Netherlands)

Krist Gruijthuijsen (Netherlands) Alan (a memoir), 2007 In Gruijthuijsen’s body of work, the in-depth investigation of personas such as Alan Abel’s underscores the artist’s interest in the relation between construction of myth, its process, and the fluctuating role of the contemporary artist. In this film, slow environmental shots of Abel’s current surroundings support the voice of the 82-year-old protagonist as he reads a letter that he wrote at age 16 describing his life so far and his future goals. This narration is followed by the reading of his obituary, recalling Abel’s last fictional action, when he placed his obituary in the New York Times. Gruijthuijsen’s practice is centered on the structuring of the artist within the curatorial position. As artist and curator, his work examines from a historical perspective the role of the artist and the necessity to produce an image, or how an artist positions himself in relation to a curator (or visa versa). The recourse to archives and mythologized or mystified forms are amongst the strategies he employs.

Cliff Evans (U.S.A.)

Cliff Evans (U.S.A.). Bare life: Booth Girl*s and Stormtroopers: Accumulation, 2007A multi-channel photomontage animation that is presented as an object similar to an altar piece or a product display. It is constructed from an LCD screen and personal media players. It functions as a machine to contain, decipher and display images gathered from online sources. It situates itself within a soft-fascism, producing a baroque spectacle that unfolds and repeats. It, perhaps, is a clockwork meant to tell the time in an age of tech-fetish and availability at a glance.

Leesa & Nicole Abahuni – "In the Sky"

Cliff Evans – The Road To Mount Weather

This three-channel moving image installation (15 minute loop) is a personal artifice assembled from ideas and images found across the socio-environment of the Internet. Its form is reminiscent of historic epics as represented in cinema and in grand panoramic paintings, while also mimicking the ubiquitous technology used for website banner advertisements.

White Balance (to think is to forget differences)

White Balance (to think is to forget differences) is an effort to uncover the geographies of power, the frontiers of privilege.

Media and internet footage is intermixed with images shot in downtown Manhattan before and after the September 11th attacks.
