Philémon Otth’s artistic practice revolves around challenging questions of time and temporalities, history and histories, material and immaterial, transparency and opacity. He is interested in exploring sites and situations by questioning the implications of images and objects within their spatial and socio-historical contexts. Otth approaches these ideas through configurations of form and language, displacement and shifting strategies.
Philémon Otth has exhibited work at CAN – Centre d’Art de Neuchâtel; Plymouth Rock, Zürich; and Kunsthaus Baselland, Muttenz, all Switzerland, among others.

Chase Middleton depicts a disparate range of scenes: ritualistic gatherings, family dinners, and hallucinatory artifice. Middleton’s work raises uncanniness by presenting the familiar in a division between reality and fantasy. Concerns around class, popular culture, youthful rebellion, and the blurred lines that separate times are woven into the fabric of each carefully constructed narrative.
Chase Middleton has exhibited work at Yancey Richardson, New York; Hyères International Festival, France; and National Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition, Canberra, among others.

Anna Witt’s artistic practice is performative, participatory, and political. She creates situations that reflect interpersonal relationships and power structures as well as conventions of speaking and acting. Her public experimental arrangements often physically draw passersby by repeating imitation of specifically coded gestures and developing complex choreographies, thus giving the participants an opportunities for individual articulation and authorship.
Anna Witt has exhibited work at Belvedere 21, Vienna; Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul; and KW Institue for Contemporary Art, Berlin, among others.
