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.

Through a methodical deconstruction of cinematic norms, Ariane Loze strips her video-performances down to their most basic, structural inner workings. Her post-minimalist aesthetic brings together conceptual expression and home-made execution underpinned by an immediately recognizable narrative made up of static shots of a straightforward action or event. Loze produces her videos autonomously: she take on the roles of director, screenwriter, editor, dresser, and sound and lighting technician, as well as plays all characters.
Ariane Loze has exhibited work at S.M.A.K., Ghent; KANAL Centre Pompidou, Brussels; Centre d’art Contemporain Chanot, Paris, among others.
