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.francescosimeti.com

Joani Tremblay investigates the perception of place through the relationship between landscape and its simulations and reproductions. Instead of painting from traditional observed landscapes, the artist assembles constructed ideas of a place from a variety of sources including advertisements, postcards, Instagram architecture influencers, social media, mass communications, and field researches. Tremblay assembles these images into digital collages to test hundreds of possibilities before applying paint.
Joani Tremblay has exhibited work at Harper’s Gallery, New York; Marie-Laure Fleisch Gallery, Brussels; and Interstate Projects, Brooklyn, among others.joanitremblay.com
