Saya Irie

Saya Irie’s work is inspired from everyday life and its ties to the distant past. Irie modifies objects by means of reduction, working with books, photographs, banknotes, and soaps, amongst others objects. Her practice is based on the idea that life continues to exist in an imperceptible sphere even after its external form disappears.

Saya Irie has exhibited work at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art; Setouchi Triennale, Shōdoshima, Kagawa, Japan; and Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo, among others.

Anna Estarriola

Anna Estarriola is interested in the exchanges and interactions between visual and media arts with other disciplines, including performing arts and technology. The themes of her work revolve around perception of reality, individual and communal behavior, and communication. She uses cross-disciplinary narrative structures that explore and question the union of content, medium and context. Over the last years, she has created media installation works combining sculptures and moving image with dramaturgy, mechanics and electronics.

Anna Estarriola has exhibited work at Galerie Anhava, Helsinki; Pori Art Museum, Finland; and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki, among others.

Devin N. Morris

Devin N. Morris collapses memory and space to envision delicate new realms of existence. Informed by his upbringing in Baltimore and his personal experiences as a queer man of color, his work often portrays semi-fictive characters who exchange acts of kindness and care within surreal domestic settings. Extending his practice of collage into physical assemblage and sculpture, Morris creates site-specific environments that refract the domestic interior and subvert traditional values and social boundaries.

Devin N. Morris has exhibited work at Baltimore Museum of Art; Bass Museum, Miami; and P.P.O.W. Gallery, New York, among others.
