Artist

Zai Nomura

Zai Nomura describes his work as a kind of “indecisive point” between death and life. His abstract work drifts between artificial and natural, sculpture and photography, and static and dynamic. According to Nomura, this kind of indecisiveness is based on the ephemerality and vulnerability of the Japanese environment in relation to natural disasters and nuclear experiences.

Zai Nomura has exhibited work at Aichi Triennale; gallery αM, Tokyo; and ARTCOURT Gallery, Osaka, among others.

Artist

Antoinette Zwirchmayr

Antoinette Zwirchmayr’s work consists of concise juxtapositions that reveal sensitive relationships between human beings, objects and nature. Her lyrical visual compositions show vulnerable surfaces separating the inner from the outer, where she examines stereotypical ideas of physique and identity. The reduced formal aesthetic that she employs is marked by a critical ambivalence and directs the viewer’s attention to details that are correlated in the transient and physical quality of analog film.

Antoinette Zwirchmayr has exhibited work at Berlinale, Germany; Toronto International Film Festival, Canada; and Austrian Film Museum, among others.
