Gil Yefman

A trans-disciplinary conceptual artist, Gil Yefman deconstructs and transforms canonized myths from varied beliefs and traditions. By undermining structured definitions and portrayal of the other, Yefman explores and cherishes the intrinsic potential of the extraordinary. Yefman’s collaborative projects fuse memory, trauma and body, with trans-generational multilayered relations where soft materials dissolve hard subject matters. Yefman uses archival materials as points of departure from which the knitting process resembles writing–texts and contexts become textures suggesting alternative interpretations to dogmatic translations.

Gil Yefman has exhibited work at Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, France; and Aomori Contemporary Art Centre, Japan, among others.

Vojtěch Novák

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 gesamtkunstwerktotal 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.
