Residents from Taiwan
Aslan Goisum tends to mine memory–collective and personal, political and cultural–for clues about colonial realities, how they have been endured and how they might be undone. Identities come into play in his work, as embodied effects of violence perpetrated or unfreedom suffered but also as possible openings, new beginnings. So far, his prime artistic tools have been the moving image, sculptural installation and various paper-based techniques.
Aslan Goisum has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp; Stedeljik Museum, Amsterdam; and Kohta, Helsinki, among others.emalin.co.uk

Maria D. Rapicavoli
Maria D. Rapicavoli works across film, photography, and site- specific installation. Her work explores conditions of power, alienation, invisibility, and displacement through a critique of global economic and political systems. Drawing on her native Sicily as a place of departure and arrival, Rapicavoli explores the sea and the sky as sites of transit where individual narratives intersect with international politics. She seeks to make tangible the ways structures of power, taking place out of sight, impact our everyday lives
Maria D. Rapicavoli has exhibited work at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Palazzo Reale, Milan; and Whitechapel Gallery, London, among others.mdrspace.com
