Artist

Zara Pfeifer

Zara Pfeifer shows interest in social and spatial phenomena by blending into the world she is documenting, both as an observer and as an active part of her surroundings–as a co-driver in a truck on a route through Europe(Good Street!) or joining the social life in the housing project Alterlaa(Du, meine konkrete Utopie). Besides photography, she reveals her findings in lectures, audio, and video recordings.

Zara Pfeifer has exhibited work at Austrian Cultural Forum, Berlin; Galerie Kernweine Foto und Raum, Stuttgart, Germany; and Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna, among others.

Artist

Francesco Simeti

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.

Artist

Frank Yefeng Wang

Frank Wang Yefeng works across various media, including 3D animation, video installation, sculpture, and writing. His migratory experience at a young age drives him to explore his reality as a multicultural individual. The estrangement of the origin and the absence of home turn “in-betweenness” into his constant dwelling. Ambivalent characters play essential roles in Yefeng’s works, where he explores the transmission of affect and the in-between states of nomadic subjects in both virtual and physical realms.

Frank Wang Yefeng has exhibited work at BRIC Biennial, Brooklyn; Hyundai Motorstudio Beijing, China; and Vanguard Gallery, Shanghai, among others.
