Elise Kirk is a photofilmic artist exploring the human psyche, constructs of place, and shifting ecology. She develops long-form photo-based projects, weaving illusions of documentary veracity, narrative allegory, and cinematic continuity into lyric sequences that question perception and certainty.
Elise Kirk has exhibited work at ClampArt, New York; The Center for Photography at Woodstock, New York; and Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Nebraska City, among others.

Through a methodical deconstruction of cinematic norms, Ariane Loze strips her video-performances down to their most basic, structural inner workings. Her post-minimalist aesthetic brings together conceptual expression and home-made execution underpinned by an immediately recognizable narrative made up of static shots of a straightforward action or event. Since 2008, Loze produces her videos autonomously: she take on the roles of director, screenwriter, editor, dresser, and sound and lighting technician, as well as plays all characters.
Ariane Loze has exhibited work at Riga Biennial of Contemporary Art, Riga; S.M.A.K., Ghent; and KANAL Centre Pompidou, Brussels, among others.
