Fatma Bucak’s works in performance, photography, sound, and video, centre on political identity, religious mythology, and landscape as a space of historical renegotiation. Investigating the fragility, tension and irreversibility of history, the power of testimony, and memory in her practice, she questions traditional forms of history-making as well as cultural and gender norms.

ektor garcia is multidisciplinary artist who approaches sculptural installation through wide-ranging experiments with craft techniques and materials. Throughout his practice, he develops a lexicon of crochet, weaving and fibre-work, including the use of ceramic, metal, leatherwork, found materials, and the principles of assemblage and social sculpture. Garcia is in constant pursuit of modes of making and presentation that trouble the division between so-called high and low culture.

Orr Menirom’s work examines how digital moving images form personal memories and collective narratives. She explores how digital imagery reflects upon, and interjects with, the daily reality of social and political life. Her works are influenced by research-based practices, documentary filmmaking and video essays. Part of her process involves re-editing found footage. She also creates environments which are documented and edited into moving image work.
Orr Menirom has exhibited work at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, London; International Film Festival Rotterdam; and Tel Aviv Museum of Art, among others.orrmenirom.com
