Vojtěch Novák describes his methodology as ‘always responding’. “Like a flipped coin seeking its third side,” he positions himself between the interpermeating roles of author and viewer. To this end, Novák’s artistic practice consists in layering narratives to form gesamtkunstwerk–total artworks spanning performative colloquies, happenings, curating and theater directing. The latter includes his stage design, his play on environment, and how he stages works of art.
Vojtěch Novák has exhibited work at Manifesta 11, Zürich; documenta 14, Kassel; and OFF-Biennale Budapest, among others.

Myrid Carten is moving image artist whose work has screened internationally. Using documentary and fiction, and often a playful combination of both, her films interrogate both the struggle for intimacy and the ways we are compromised by our pasts. She explores the universal desire to be both known and hidden, and the costs involved in both of these complicated commitments.
Myrid Carten has exhibited work at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London; Void Gallery, Derry, United Kingdom; and The Regional Cultural Centre, Ireland, among others.
