Artist

Maria Hupfield

“Maria Hupfield is a maker, mover, connector, an Anishinaabe-kwe and member of Wasauksing First Nation. Like the artist herself, Hupfield’s work is never static. Her performances, sculptures and installations reference different spans and scales of times. The projects specifically reflect her resistance to the Western tendency to essentialize Native artists and treat them as interchangeable producers of exotic cultural experiences. Hupfield intervenes in white art institutions by inserting Indigenous knowledge structures into their practices.” Text by Vanessa Dion Fletcher, Art in America.

Maria Hupfield has exhibited work at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto; Galerie Hugues Charbonneau, Montreal; and Museum of Arts and Design, New York City, among others.

Artist

Chadwick Rantanen

Chadwick Rantanen appropriates the forms of familiar consumer goods and modifies and re-contextualizes them into sculptural tools. In doing so, he creates opposing acts of compromise and dissent, acquiescence and insubordination, tension and harmony and the passive aggressive. Adapting and conforming to architecture and infrastructure, Rantanen’s sculptures mimic installations or site-specific works, often taking the form of an adaptor, wedging between objects and their sources of power, articulating a web of accommodation, compromise, maintenance and parasitism by slightly detouring energy, but never causing harm.

Chadwick Rantanen has exhibited work at Secession Vienna; STANDARD (OSLO); and Essex Street, New York, among others.

Studio #204

Artist

İnci Furni

İnci Furni contemplates the constructed spaces of social life and researches the possibilities of new and as-yet-undefined fields of individual existence outside of these. Furni’s inner world and everyday life fill the background of these research processes. Dreams, imaginations and content are brought into the works through inward processes of exploration without designating an individual quest or inner journey.

İnci Furni has exhibited work at Arter, Istanbul; Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna; and the 2009 Istanbul Biennial, among others.
