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

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
Myrid Carten is moving image artist whose work has screened internationally. Using documentary and fiction, and often a playful combination of both, her films interrogate both the struggle for intimacy and the ways we are compromised by our pasts. She explores the universal desire to be both known and hidden, and the costs involved in both of these complicated commitments.
Myrid Carten has exhibited work at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London; Void Gallery, Derry, United Kingdom; and The Regional Cultural Centre, Ireland, among others.myridcarten.com
