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.

Paolo Bini’s artistic research is an investigatory attempt to transform and re-appropriate the authentic notions of ‘the memory of an image’ as it adheres to the contemporary rhythms in the world around us. These images are formed as a pixilation of units. Usually marked out by a scanner or a plotter, the result is a succession of colored stripes that become a succinct and redefined translation of what came before.
