Agostino Iacurci works with a wide range of media, including painting, wall-painting, sculpture, drawing, and installation. He creates immersive spaces to transform the perception of given environments. Starting from specific topics like the use of colors in the ancient and classical world, he questions issues of traditions and identity, investigating the process of idealization underlying historical myths and their impact on the collective imagination.

Imogen Taylor’s practice seeks to illuminate the modernist painting movement’s embedded relationship with LGBTQ+ histories. Her reclamations of modernist tropes emerge on parallelogram shaped canvases to create a sense of disorientation for the viewer through queer phenomenology. Taylor believes that parallel to the physical act of painting, queerness functions as a medium activated by her body.

Habby Osk’s interests lies in basic physics: balance, movement, gravity, time and force. These concepts play an important role across her art practice as she creates works which test the limits of balance and stability and explore gravity’s influence over time using sculpture, photography and installation as her primary medium. Osk places objects in precarious situations to probe how far they can go without tipping over, to capture the moment of stillness before the looming collapse and the transformation over time.
