Sara Cwynar works with photography, video, and book-making. Her work involves a constant archiving and re-presentation of collected visual materials. She is interested in the way that images morph, accumulate, endure and change in meaning and value over time, and the effect this has on a collective worldview.

Civan Özkanoğlu’s interdisciplinary work traces the everyday. He is interested in seemingly mundane stories and daily absurdities and how they converge in public space, mass media, the art world, and in the realm of politics and collective memory. His practice has increasingly moved from photography to other visual, sculptural and performative interventions that tend to the conceptual tensions within artistic production and the exhibition forms it enables.
Civan Özkanoğlu has exhibited work at SALT, Istanbul; National Academy Museum & School, New York; and Istanbul Modern, among others.

Antoinette Zwirchmayr’s work consists of concise juxtapositions that reveal sensitive relationships between human beings, objects and nature. Her lyrical visual compositions show vulnerable surfaces separating the inner from the outer, where she examines stereotypical ideas of physique and identity. The reduced formal aesthetic that she employs is marked by a critical ambivalence and directs the viewer’s attention to details that are correlated in the transient and physical quality of analog film.
