Silas Inoue’s practice is characterized by an idiosyncratic approach to nature and natural sciences, and a style he describes as Quasi-Asian in reference to he’s mixed Danish and Japanese heritage. He makes use of classic as well as less conventional materials, including sugar, cooking oil, mold and other living organisms. Combining intuitive methods with more analytic observations of the world, he creates works that are humorous, sensorial, and thought evoking. Interested in how different life forms are distributed, Inoue explores ideas around consumption/formation, ecological/economic growth, and connectedness between the species and the planetary.
Silas Inoue has exhibited work at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Ishøj, Denmark; Augustiana Kunsthal, Augustenborg, Denmark; and Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles, among others.silasinoue.com

Anssi Pulkkinen creates sculptural and architectural interventions within interiors and public space. His work is grounded in observations of spaces and the artistic gestures are often delicate operations that distort these observations with humour. Pulkkinen employs materials typically used in construction industry, structural elements and parts of infrastructure. These elements are brought back to a dysfunctional state, a state of becoming of meaning. They disrupt the system of here and now, to rupture viewer’s organization of space and time.
Anssi Pulkkinen has exhibited work at The ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark; The Helsinki Art Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, both Finland, among others.
