Claudia Ulisses’ work focuses on social and political issues. Her critical approach, sometimes nostalgic in tone, addresses the (in)flexibilities of the human condition. She develops her work through a minute process of critical analysis, creating multidisciplinary projects with a combination of media such as photography, installation, sculpture and video. The form as visual seductive device is evident, but it acts mainly as an element of subversion of reality. Representation is a way to place the viewer face to face with the disconcert and ambiguity of the iconographic discourse.

Carlos Irijalba studied fine arts at the University of the Basque Country and UDK Berlin. His work analyzes the way in which Western culture constructs a circuit of the real that loses all outside references and becomes entirely self-contained. Major themes are the society of the spectacle, the insignificance, the noise and the general conformity on contemporary culture. In his recent works Twilight (2008-9) and Unwilling Spectator (2009-10), Irijalba plays out the gap between relative time and space and the subjective experienced reality.
