Rodrigo Ímaz imbues his graphic work with strategies that are site-specific in order to investigate the blurry limits between time and space. Through poetical analogies of nature and anthropogenic events his work emphasizes the inadequacies of instrumental reason and criticizes contemporary societies through an exploration of the violent relationship between life and the cycles of nature. In Ímaz’s work, organic forms arise threatening arrogant human pride and the course of progress, while his visual poetry ennobles human creations.

Leciejewski explores the various social and scientific uses of photography. His work employs an experimental, analytic approach to the medium of photography by using various techniques and media. Besides content-related issues and the reflection of his own work, he is interested in issues such as the rhetoric of the photographic series, the photographic genre, the composition, and how as much time as possible can fit in a single photographic image. His pictures are repositories of time that allow for the slowing down of the act of seeing. Leciejewski lives and works in Leipzig, Germany.

Borea’s work is characterized by the continuous displacement and use of diverse media and materials. The openness toward these media define Borea’s approach, where the object’s time and history are of fundamental importance within the plastic discourse. His work explores the relationship between different cultures and histories. The role of distance in cultural, economic and social events constitute an important part in the process and execution of his works. Borea has exhibited individually and collectively in several venues in Europe, Latin America and the U.S.
Alberto Borea was part of There Is No Flag Large Enough, a collaborative project with Stefano Cagol and Maryam Najd.
