Duy Hoàng’s practice focuses on the links between the connections/disconnections one experiences with their surrounding environment, between the mundanes to the phenomena, and from the potential of growth to the inevitability of decay. His work focuses on our relationship to the minute details around us in conjunction with the vast environment we are in. Hoàng entered the United States as a Vietnamese immigrant during his adolescent years and the transitional moment triggered his necessity for intensive observation and awareness.
Duy Hoàng has exhibited work at Festival Images Vevey, Switzerland; Wave Hill, New York; and Kleine Humboldt Galerie, Berlin, among others.

Maria Meinild is an artist working primarily in video. Alongside her use of the moving image, she creates installations and objects both separate and in relation to the screen. In her works, she combines methods from the worlds of film and theatre with investigations of the staging of everyday life, patterns of social behaviour, and our ideas of normality.
