Artist

Alma Visscher

Alma Louise Visscher creates fabric-based installations, jewelry and drawings that consider resources and material culture and the poetic possibilities and problems within these. Through process and materials, she explores the intersection of materiality and the unknowable, the ecology of places, and the things that hold us, care for us, and comfort us. These motivations have led her to explore materials such as working with natural dyes and inks sourced from her immediate environments and repurposed textiles and materials.

Alma Louise Visscher has exhibited work at Art Gallery of Alberta, Alberta; Idea Exchange. Ontario; Kimura Gallery, Alaska, among others.

Artist

Bianca Argimón

Bianca Argimón takes a multidimensional approach to explore societal nuances, challenges, and oddities, creating a dynamic space for paradoxical situations and metaphors. She incorporates visual elements in her work to create puzzles that challenge viewers to understand her unfolding narratives, and adds kafkaesque aspects into her sculpture and installation to reinvent familiar objects. She has recently delved into filmmaking, producing her debut short film ‘Sol y Sombra’, widening the scope of her artistic research.

Bianca Argimón has exhibited work at Palais Tokyo, France; Fondation Lambert, France; Copenhagen Contemporary, Denmark, among others.
