Artist

André Hemer

André Hemer’s practice pursues a new mode of representation in painting, whereby image and form are transacted back and forth between materialised and de-materialised states. In doing so, Hemer’s paintings literally re-present the contemporary experience of digital media through the traditional painting object, revealing the most basic changes to our phenomenological experience of the contemporary world.

André Hemer’s work has been exhibited at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles; Yavuz Gallery, Singapore; Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London; Tristian Koenig Gallery, Melbourne; Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; and Münchner Stadtmuseum, Germany. In 2016 he was awarded a New Generation Award by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand, and was the winner of the Wallace Arts Trust Paramount Award. He has been included in major publications such as 100 Painters of Tomorrow, Thames & Hudson, London, and Art and the Internet, Black Dog Publishing, London. In 2016 Hemer was invited to edit the publication Painting Regarding the Present, published by Naives and Visionaries, Berlin. He is based in Vienna, Austria.

Artist

Antonia Low

Antonia Low’s installations, sculptures and photographs are inspired by infrastructures that underline everyday life, such as work spaces, storage rooms, construction sites and archaeological excavations. When she exposes a room’s wiring or presents medieval walls on semi-transparent fabric, she is only rarely concerned with a critique of that specific site. Instead, her interest is in a spatial reconstruction of how the recollections and after images of spaces become fixed in one’s mind and superimposed on an actual space.

Antonia Low has had solo exhibitions at K21 Kunstsammlung NRW Duesseldorf; Palazzo Altemps, Museo Nationale Romano; Kunstverein Braunschweig; Kunstmuseum Bonn; and most recently at Eigen&Art Lab Berlin and Gingko Space Beijing. Her work has been presented in art institutions such as at Irish Museum of Modern Art Dublin; Marres Maastricht; MUDAC Lausanne; Den Frie Udstillingsbygning Copenhagen and MACRO Testaccio, Rome.
