Yu-Chin Tseng (Taiwan)

Mr. Tseng (Taiwan) creates pieces in film and video, as well as in fiction and poetry. His work explores feelings of isolation and of being invisible in an unknown world and has been included in numerous festivals throughout Taiwan and Asia, winning several important awards. In 2007 he was selected to represent Taiwan in Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany. He has also created stage designs for several theater companies, and his design for the Taitung Theater Group’s production of Our Snake received Taiwan’s prestigious Golden Harvest Award.

Nina Sobell (U.S.A.)

Sobell (USA) pioneered the use of video, computers, and interactivity in art, as well as performance on the Web. Since 1969, when she first used video to document participants' undirected interactions with her sculptures, she investigates the extent to which video enables her to manipulate the relation between time and space, and to create a vortex for human experience, in which the mediated event coincides with public experience, memory, and relationships.

Eric Siu (Hong Kong)

Eric Siu (Hong Kong) has been described as one of Hong Kong’s most accomplished new media artists. His interactive media projects demonstrate his thorough knowledge of the technical aspects of digital media, as well as his ability to deconstruct digital images in ways that are both enlightening and amusing.

Jean Shin (U.S.A./Korea)

Jean (USA/Korea) creates elaborate sculptures and site-specific installations that suggest imaginary communities through the use of accumulated cast-offs. Mary Ceruti writes, "Jean Shin uses discarded material (the excess, the forgotten, the no longer useful) in works that operate between abstraction and representation. Made from the remnants of contemporary urban life, Shin's sculptures form a sort of visual history and a social mapping."

Mafalda Santos (Portugal)

Mafalda Santos (Portugal). Organizational schemes, networks, interconnection and principles of scale and composition are determinant in Mafalda’s work. Expanded drawings on murals or ground works cull their information from computer interface, books and archives to create a simplified imagery that reflects “a moment/place in a mental or social structure of relations.” The artist also considers that they offer a comment on the specific context for which the work was produced.

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.

Rashaad Newsome (U.S.A.)

Rashaad Newsome (USA). Rashaad’s videos, performances, sculptures, and photographs interrogate notions of cultural/ social signifiers as well as how they are formed. They also analyze the complexity of the desire for power and acceptance that is formative for those who are placed in a subaltern position. As Rashaad says “I feel that a large part of the process of identification, for one placed in this position, is folded into everyday life. I use things I see in everyday life in order to decipher this complex psychic structure”.

Hung Nguyen Manh (Vietnam)


Hung Nguyen Manh is an artist, a self-taught composer and an active participant in the “alternative” art scene in Hanoi. As an artist whose practice is driven by interdisciplinarity, his work investigates current symbology as opposed to a Vietnamese/Oriental aesthetic that reaches into the past for visual vocabulary.Mr. Nguyen’s residency at Location One is supported by the Asian Cultural Council.

Aoife Collins (Ireland)

Aoife Collin's (Ireland) interdisciplinary practice is shaped by recurrent themes of permutation, multiplicity, cultural paraphernalia and mass identification. Works are made out of existing materials, substances and structures that are transferred into new forms of narration. In her attempt to open up the realm of possibility, the artist pays close attention to the ability of objects to role-play and the extent of their mutability.

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.

Daniel Andersson (Finland)

Daniel Andersson (Finland). Fundamental questions about the world are a constant thread in Andersson’s work. The artist attempts to illustrate these complex questions in series of works developed over long periods of time. The metaphorical power of images is a compelling source for the artist, as is the impact of different mythologies and belief systems of our day.

Hermelinde Hergenhahn (Germany)

Hermelinde Hergenhahn's (Germany) drawing practice, which extends into the public space, has been refered to as “taking a line for a walk, but …a walk on the wild side – a persistent, jerky, scatological line whose erratic (and erotic) wanderings describe a world both comic and melancholic, quirky and unsettling…”. Displaced and off-center figures populate hundreds of small drawings. In her writings, films and installation work Hermelinde defines her approach as one of “critical nearness.”

Katia Kameli (France)

Katia Kameli (France) is a Franco-Algerian artist and filmmaker whose practice is marked by the exploration of multiplicity and the in-between. In her video, photography and sculpture work, the artist investigates intercultural spaces, intersecting identities and their construction. As she herself says: “Fluxes of people are automatically creating hybridisations, indeed new spaces, thoughts and situations.”

Mariana Viegas (Portugal)

Mariana Viegas (Portugal) Mariana works mainly with photography and video, questioning the media and subverting reality. In the artist’s view, landscape is an entity which is transformed by our presence and which, in turn, transforms us. Mariana observes and records the daily rituals performed by people in natural environments which are developed within the urban habitat, and draws out of these situations possibilities of existing narratives.

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.

Lydia Venieri (Greece)

Lydia Venieri (Greece) Lydia is a multiple media artist whose work ranges from sculpture to installations incorporating painting, photography, video and the Internet. The fusion of mythological references with the everyday lies at the heart of her inspiration : “I create universes and landscapes where I project stories, conspiracy theories related to the media and mythological legends”.

Trine Nedreaas (Norway)

Trine Nedreaas (Norway) Primarily a video artist, Trine’s works portrays people who are unknown but extraordinary and ambitious individuals. She focuses on their talent, aspirations and on their often unachieved desires and distant life goals.

Wang Ya-Hui (Taiwan)

Wang Ya-Hui (Taiwan) Wang,Ya-hui is primarily a video and video installation artist. Her work is driven by the exploration of human consciousness and examines how hidden or conscious changes of “being” are triggered through illusion and imagination. Her installations often make apparent shifts of perception and the passage of one visible reality to another.

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.

Yoon-Young Park (Korea)

Yoon-Young Park (Korea) Trained as a traditional Oriental painter in Korea, Yoon-Young’s drawings and paintings integrate calligraphic and surrealistic methods of working into which the artist incorporates a wide range of contemporary cultural references ranging from fiction, documentary movies and plays to quiz sessions for the audience.

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.

Paololuca Barbieri (Italy)

Paololuca Barbieri (Italy) Paololuca’s projects investigate the boundaries between art and science, and foster synergies among a host of other disciplines (electronic music, lighting engineering, programming, drawing and video). The artist confronts these relationships with both analog and digital media. The transversal use of digital tools combined with an interdisciplinary approach lies at the heart of Paololuca’s practice.

Andrew Duggan (Ireland)

Andrew Duggan (Ireland) Andrew’s new media work and installations investigate the space between tradition (fact, folk/lore etc.) and contemporary space and time. He plays with cultural representations and perceptions and has presented many projects in the public domain. In Kerry, the Bán/Blanc series (2004) were projected onto a building reputed to have been prepared for the escape and arrival of Marie Antoinette. Andrew also frequently collaborates with dancers, musicians and cultural institutions.

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.

Simo Alitalo (Finland)

Simo Alitalo (Finland) Simo Alitalo studied philosophy and musicology at the University in Turku, Finland. He is currently working on his doctoral dissertation at the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki.

Eric Van Hove (Belgium)

Eric Van Hove (Belgium). Inspired by a deep sense of wanderlust and the experience of foreignness, Van Hove questions the limits, “moral competence” and modes of persuasion of western contemporary art, once brought to the “audiences of the border.” If he defines his work as “poetic” and “tempted”, it has recently been advanced by some that while pondering on Globalisation it inscribes in the current of Fantastic Art. Prolific artist, he reflects on materialism and nomadism, whereas his insubstantial and subtle interventions often question in a discursive way sociological, political and ecological issues.

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.

Rie Kawakami (Japan)

Rie Kawakami (Japan) Kawakami works in the tradition of iron and steel welding. Her sculptures attempt to convey notions of life and its cycles, such as the ever-expanding universe, the dividing of a nucleus through an electron microscope, or the repeated cycles of construction and destruction of cities.

Nina Katchadourian (U.S.A.)

Nina Katchadourian (U.S.A.)

Katchadourian’s work exists across a wide variety of media that includes sound, video, sculpture and photography. At Location One, the artist will be working on a new synchronized multi-channel video work called “Zoo” and a number of new sound-based works.

Agnieszka Kalinowska (Poland)

Agnieszka Kalinowska (Poland) Kalinowska’s multifaceted video and installation practice investigates the observation of human behavior in extreme conditions and states of emotional and psychic tension. Her work makes visible the condensation of energy and the hidden potential revealed in such situations, such as fear or hope, in a contemporary social and political context.

So Youn Jeong (Korea)

So Youn Jeong (Korea) In her videos and installations, So Youn Jeong’s explores aesthetic issues relating to time and space, memory and identity.

Ruey-Hsiaan Hsu (Taiwan)

Ruey-Hsiaan Hsu uses mechanical elements as a creative medium.

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.

Natalie Bewernitz / Marek Goldowski (Germany)

Natalie Bewernitz / Marek Goldowski (Germany) Berwernitz / Goldowski have been working together since 2000. Their work focuses on tracing the possibilities and limits of depicting individual personality in its physical, spiritual and psychological dimensions.

In all his work, the artist demonstrates an uncanny ability for capturing people’s circumstances on film and video.

This enables viewers to break through purely static visual limitation and further experience what the artist intends to express in his works in an all round way. Personal participation can better stimulate the imagination of viewers.”
