Myrid Carten is moving image artist whose work has screened internationally. Using documentary and fiction, and often a playful combination of both, her films interrogate both the struggle for intimacy and the ways we are compromised by our pasts. She explores the universal desire to be both known and hidden, and the costs involved in both of these complicated commitments.
Myrid Carten has exhibited work at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London; Void Gallery, Derry, United Kingdom; and The Regional Cultural Centre, Ireland, among others.myridcarten.com

Adjani Okpu-Egbe is a multidisciplinary artist who uses mixed media, including found objects, to make works that shed light on socio-political and economic issues affecting Africa, its diaspora and global social justice. The artist explores autobiographical contents and day to day life experiences to create metaphors throughout his practice.
Through a methodical deconstruction of cinematic norms, Ariane Loze strips her video-performances down to their most basic, structural inner workings. Her post-minimalist aesthetic brings together conceptual expression and home-made execution underpinned by an immediately recognizable narrative made up of static shots of a straightforward action or event. Since 2008, Loze produces her videos autonomously: she take on the roles of director, screenwriter, editor, dresser, and sound and lighting technician, as well as plays all characters.
Ariane Loze has exhibited work at Riga Biennial of Contemporary Art, Riga; S.M.A.K., Ghent; and KANAL Centre Pompidou, Brussels, among others.
