Sonia Leimer

In her installations, Sonia Leimer explores our perceptual foundations, which are formed on the basis of individual, historical, and media-related patterns of experience. As products of concrete historical contexts, rooms and objects undergo a transformation in which history and societal changes become palpable.

Sonia Leimer lives and works in Vienna. She studied architecture at the Technical University of Vienna and the Academy of Fine Art Vienna. From 2007 to 2012, she hosted a radio titled City and the Image. She taught at the Academy for Art and Photography together with Martin Guttmann from 2012–2016. Leimer exhibited her work internationally at Leopold Museum, Vienna; Galerie nächst St. Stephan, Vienna; Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen; Barbara Gross Galerie, Munich; Los Angeles Museum of Art; 5th Moscow Biennial; artothek, Cologne; Museion – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Bozen, Italy; MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles; Kunstverein Basis, Frankfurt; BAWAG Contemporary, Vienna; Salzburger Kunstverein; and Manifesta 7, Rovereto.

Esther Tielemans

Esther Tielemans examines the foundations of painting by extrapolating opposites: flat and three dimensional; abstraction and figuration; and reality and illusion. Tielemans’ works are reminiscent of dreams or memories in which the barrier between reality and imagination seems to be fading.

Esther Tielemans has exhibited work at Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; and GEM, Museum of Contemporary ArtThe Hague, all The Netherlands, among others.
