Sebastian Burger explores themes around the integrity of the human body, its physicality and the construction of identity through materiality, texture, and surface. He creates paintings that look back at their observers with delicate gradients as well harsh shapes and colors.
Sebastian Burger has exhibited work at Kunstverein Leipzig; Platform Stockholm; and Gateway Center for Contemporary Art, Brest, France, among others.

James Beckett’s work in diverse media examines subjects of a historical nature, from the development (and subsequent demise) of European industry, to the more metaphysical aspects of dowsing and voodoo. His constructions favor an obscure and rambling logic, often within a strict formalism reflecting the mechanisms of display. A sometimes-dubious approach to his subject matter entertains the historic as suspended in a state of constant re-interpretation, a portrayal of a world where anomaly and change are fundamentals.

Zai Nomura describes his work as a kind of “indecisive point” between death and life. His abstract work drifts between artificial and natural, sculpture and photography, and static and dynamic. According to Nomura, this kind of indecisiveness is based on the ephemerality and vulnerability of the Japanese environment in relation to natural disasters and nuclear experiences.
