“Maria Hupfield is a maker, mover, connector, an Anishinaabe-kwe and member of Wasauksing First Nation. Like the artist herself, Hupfield’s work is never static. Her performances, sculptures and installations reference different spans and scales of times. The projects specifically reflect her resistance to the Western tendency to essentialize Native artists and treat them as interchangeable producers of exotic cultural experiences. Hupfield intervenes in white art institutions by inserting Indigenous knowledge structures into their practices.” Text by Vanessa Dion Fletcher, Art in America.

Daniel Wagener’s photography involves graphic design, staging and urbanism. He focuses on objects and urban landscapes that are both familiar and transgressive to him. He documents traces accidentally left behind by people, and the absurd normality everyday life staging. In their saturated primary colors, Wagener’s photographs portray commonplace scenes that propose new approaches to reality.
Daniel Wagener has exhibited work at Cercle Cité, Luxembourg; Brussels Gallery Weekend, Belgium; and Les Rencontres d’Arles, France, among others.danielwagener.org

İnci Furni contemplates the constructed spaces of social life and researches the possibilities of new and as-yet-undefined fields of individual existence outside of these. Furni’s inner world and everyday life fill the background of these research processes. Dreams, imaginations and content are brought into the works through inward processes of exploration without designating an individual quest or inner journey.
İnci Furni has exhibited work at Arter, Istanbul; Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna; and the 2009 Istanbul Biennial, among others.incifurni.com.tr
