Francesco Simeti creates site-specific installations, which the artist describes as “aesthetically enchanting scenes” that reveal a complex subtext upon closer inspection. Since the late nineties, he has explored the environmental crisis, the numerous conflicts and consequent displacements of people, through sculptures and video animations. The artist conceive of these as a form of collage.
Francesco Simeti has exhibited work at Castello di Rivoli, Torino, Italy; Mass Moca, North Adams; and Rhode Island School of Design among others.

Aslan Goisum tends to mine memory–collective and personal, political and cultural–for clues about colonial realities, how they have been endured and how they might be undone. Identities come into play in his work, as embodied effects of violence perpetrated or unfreedom suffered but also as possible openings, new beginnings. So far, his prime artistic tools have been the moving image, sculptural installation and various paper-based techniques.
Aslan Goisum has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp; Stedeljik Museum, Amsterdam; and Kohta, Helsinki, among others.
