Sara Enrico’s work is based on the concept of “weave,” encompassing both objects and language. Working with analog and digital processes and employing painting with textiles, she investigates material surface in relation to the body. Her abstract shapes connote the haptic and the anthropomorphous.
Sara Enrico has exhibited works in Italy and abroad, including Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Les Instants Chavirés, Montreuil; and Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Como, amongst others.saraenrico.weebly.com

Doreen Garner’s work depicts the history of black bodies subject to scientific objectification, experimentation, humiliation and torture. She translates this documentation that she cannot unread into objects, videos, and performances that people cannot unsee. Unanesthetized surgeries and unwarranted medical experiments re-emerge in glass and silicone sculpture. These rubbery, transparent carcasses become objects of desire, glittered with wet silicon, latex, Swarovski crystals and hair.
Doreen Garner has exhibited her work at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, Brooklyn; Pioneer Works, Brooklyn; The National Museum of African American History and Culture, Washington, D.C., and more.doreengarner.com

Furen Dai’s practice has focused largely on the economy of culture industry, and how languages lose function, usage, and history. Dai’s hybrid art practice utilizes video, sound, sculpture, painting and collaboration. Her years as a professional translator and interest in linguistic studies have guided her artistic practice since 2015. She has been researching and developing the nearly extinct language of NüShu. The language, derived from Chinese characters, was created and used exclusively by women.
Furen Dai has exhibited work at the 13th Athens Digital Arts Festival, Greece; 2016 International Video Art Festival Now&After, Moscow, Russia; and Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival, Scotland, amongst other.
