Svetlana Bailey builds installations and work with in-camera collage. Her photographs are combinations of objects, images and props derived from personal archives found lingering on her hard drive, images from family storage, or things she’s comes across in everyday life. Circling in collection and recollection, she transports fragments of her environment, both the physical and psychological, into the studio to be reproduced and reinstalled.

In her art practice, Ana Hoffner analyzes moments of crisis, war and conflict in recent history and politics. Her performances, videos and photo installations seek to introduce temporalities, relations, and spaces in between established perspectives, memories of iconic images, and highly performative events. Hoffner employs means of appropriation such as restaging photographs, interviews and reports, as well as strategies of desynchronization.
Ana Hoffner completed the PhD-in-Practice program at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2014. She has exhibited work at Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; Secession, Vienna; and VOX Contemporary Image Center, Montreal, among others.

Heather Brammeier is a painter whose practice has expanded to include constructing paintings and drawings in space. Her use of materials creates visual puzzles that challenge perception. Brammeier’s work tests physical and perceptual boundaries through vertiginous stacking, intricate color configurations, and structures that invite interaction.
