Vojtěch Novák describes his methodology as ‘always responding’. “Like a flipped coin seeking its third side,” he positions himself between the interpermeating roles of author and viewer. To this end, Novák’s artistic practice consists in layering narratives to form gesamtkunstwerk–total artworks spanning performative colloquies, happenings, curating and theater directing. The latter includes his stage design, his play on environment, and how he stages works of art.
Vojtěch Novák has exhibited work at Manifesta 11, Zürich; documenta 14, Kassel; and OFF-Biennale Budapest, among others.

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.wangyefeng.com

In her artistic practice, Katarzyna Przezwańska combines nature and architecture in an effort to “improve the quality of human life and to make art useful”. The artist is inspired by both vernacular architecture and the 20th century classics as well as geological phenomena and vegetative processes. Przezwańska creates architectural interventions, installations, and sculptures, where she often uses natural materials such as rocks, minerals, and plants.
Katarzyna Przezwańska has exhibited work at Galeria Dawid Radziszewski, Poland; Museum of Modern Art, Poland; and Abteiberg Museum, Germany, among others.katarzynaprzezwanska.tumblr.com
