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.

Chun Hua Catherine Dong
Chun Hua Catherine Dong’s practice is based in performance art, photography, video, AR and VR. Body is political. Working within the gap between body as image and body as experienced reality, Dong uses the body—often her/their own body— as a visual territory in her/their work and a primary material to activate social commentary on gender, identity, and immigration, asking what it means to be a citizen of the world today. Dong currently explores the subtle boundaries between art and technology.
Chun Hua Catherine Dong has exhibited at Manif d’Art – The Quebec City Biennial, International Digital Art Biennial; The International Digital Art Biennial, Montreal; and Art Gallery of Hamilton, Ontario, 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.
