Dale playfully alters familiar objects, twisting the
practical into the inoperative. In his apparent non-sensical way
of approaching the ordinary the viewer is invited to create his
own operations in the space remaining. His practice includes video,
sculpture and installation. He was artist in residence at Fondazione
Pistolleto in Italy and is currently attending the MFA in Fine Arts
at Goldsmiths College. He has exhibited in group shows across Europe
and, most recently, has presented his work in The Law of Large Numbers
at Cell Projects in London.
Discenzas work addresses the subconscious influence
of mass media, such as the television and Internet. He is best known
for recording hours of television and condensing it into short,
looping installations of video art. His work talks about the dichotomy
between our logical expectations of what we experience on television
and the more emotive realm it comes to occupy. He is based in California
and has exhibited widely in both California and New York, most notably
in the Whitney Biennial.
Kirkman produces subtle interventions on site, which
call attention to the specificity of building materials. Her intensive
serial and repetitive actions reflectively question their own purpose.
The cumulative product of her procedures is a slowing down of the
experience of the building she is addressing. She received her MFA
in Sculpture at Slade School of Fine Arts in 2005. She has exhibited
her work in Italy, the United Kingdom and has recently presented
a new project in NotLob at Galeria Carmen Perez in London.
has developed a character named Edward Matthew Taylor, who is communicating
the coming race of Human Computers in the 31st Century. Through
his work he addresses the fantastic appeal of a future technology
that will drastically change our lives, much as science fiction
does. However, his work deviates from science fiction in that it
does not mirror our current sociological structures, but rather
addresses the need for belief and myth making. He has had several
solo shows and has been recently recognized in Yerba Buena Center
for the Arts Bay Area Now 4, an exhibition that showcases
emerging talent from the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lozanos practice is focused on the idea of the
instability of conventional boundaries set up by pragmatic obstacles
or exterior agents such as architects, curators, lawyers and space
managers. Her conceptual proposals open other spaces within conventionally
agreed sets of rules, where they are least expected. She is currently
attending the MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College and has organized
and presented her projects in several locations ranging from San
Francisco to Prague and most recently in Hostel at Keith Talent
Gallery in London. Elysa is a co-organizer of this project.
Rebelos work looks at precise, objective and scrutinized
data sources such as trainspotters notebooks, constellations,
stamp collections, and alien creatures to remind us of our limitations
and understand what truly defines their magnetic pull. She is also
attending the MFA in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths College. Her work has
been exhibited in Portugal and in the UK and has been the subject
of several publications. She has most recently written an article
for virose, an e-magazine dedicated to art and media technology
based in Oporto. Ines is a co-organizer of this project.
Ugay and Roman Maskalev have worked in collaboration
to question how history can simultaneously shape visual memories
and be enriched with personal ones. In their film and video projects
one finds the nostalgic tension of the use of low-technology in
our high-tech saturated present. Based in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan,
respectively, their work has most notably been exhibited at the
9th Istanbul Biennial and at the 51st Venice Biennial.
