Artist

Ustina Yakovleva

Ustina Yakovleva creates paintings, graphic works, and objects. A large part of her practice is informed by graphic works consisting of identical individual strokes that create abstract compositions; an automatic writing of sorts that binds time into material form. In her works in other media, she follows similar principles: embroideries evolve into organic structures, fabric sculptures grow to resemble continents or icebergs, or possibly electronic circuits rooted in empty air.

Ustina Yakovleva has exhibited work at the 5th Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, Ekaterinburg; Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art; Museum of the Artistic Exploration of the Arctic, Arkhangelsk, all Russia among others.

Conny Karlsson Lundgren

Conny Karlsson Lundgren is a visual artist based in Stockholm and Hoby Mosse. He works with film, text, image, and archival documents, to explores themes around social, political, and individual identities. In his practice, the artist employs interdisciplinary methods to present alternative realities and social agreements reimagined through experiences, contrapositions, desires, and secret codes. Karlsson Lundgren is interested in the archive as both carrier of information and a mechanism of control.

Conny Karlsson Lundgren has exhibited work at Moderna Museet Malmö; Gothenburg Art Museum; and Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp, among others.

Artist

James Beckett

James Beckett’s work in diverse media examines subjects of a historical nature, from the development (and subsequent demise) of European industry, to the more metaphysical aspects of dowsing and voodoo. His constructions favor an obscure and rambling logic, often within a strict formalism reflecting the mechanisms of display. A sometimes-dubious approach to his subject matter entertains the historic as suspended in a state of constant re-interpretation, a portrayal of a world where anomaly and change are fundamentals.

James Beckett has exhibited work at Belgian Pavilion of the Venice Biennale; MAAT, Lisbon; MCAD Manila – Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, among others.
