With painting as her main medium Rusudan Melikishvili examines and explores themes and relations between subjects such as gender, body and femininity. Her works are based on some of humankind’s longlasting existential and psychological questions about birth, life, sexuality and mortality.
Rusudan Melikishvili has exhibited work at The Lviv National Art Gallery and the Hungarian National Museum, among others.

Working with analog photography, Tina Lechner uses her camera as an instrument to explore identity, depict subjectivity, and open the gaze to an apocalyptic vision of (post-) modernity. In her photographs the human body is coated in self-produced sculptural objects that suggest some sort of science fiction-esque rebirth undermining the cultural construction of femininity.

Hesselholdt & Mejlvang
Hesselholdt & Mejlvang is a Copenhagen-based artist duo established in 1999 consisting of Sofie Hesselholdt and Vibeke Mejlvang. The duo works primarily with large-scale installations, projects in public space and performance. Their practice is research and context based with a strong focus on site-specificity. Hesselholdt & Mejlvang investigate the conditions of contemporary life through themes including national identity, Eurocentrism, and the creation of a collective “we.” They question how social and political structures are established and reproduced today.
Hesselholdt & Mejlvang have exhibited work at Manifesta 12, Palermo; ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, Denmark; and Uppsala Art Museum, Sweden, among others.
