Rasmus Høj Mygind

Rasmus Høj Mygind’s practice encompasses a range of media including; painting, digital printmaking and ready-made sculpture/assemblage, often mixed together as parts of larger installations. A recurring interest – perhaps a fetish for objects and aesthetics from the building industry- is evident in his work. Practical gestures from art handling, such as the protection tape put on the glass to protects the work, is used as a part of the composition of a series of framed works. Roof gutters are used as frames for paintings. It’s borderline archaic art as we know it. And yet there is something else going on, post-taste.

Rasmus Høj Mygind’s recent solo shows include Work.pdf, Ringsted Galleriet; PVCntings & Suggestions 4 Bronzes, 3D, Henningsen Gallery, Copenhagen; and Break Time Pro, OTHER Projects. Mygind’s work has been exhibited at IMO, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Den Frie Center for Contemporary Art, TOVES, Malmø Konsthall, Astrup Fearnley Museum, Galerie West, Randers Kunstmuseum.

Jan Mun

Jan Mun explores the generative principles of how complex systems such as botany and fungi, economies, and social networks function; and the effects of interactions between different entities, whether cultures, plants, or people. Mun is a media artist that creates social sculptures. She uses a combination of artistic and scientific processes that manifest in the form of social practice, interactive installations, and bio-art. Mun is an amateur mycologist, microbiologist, and beekeeper working in collaboration with communities to innovate ways to communicate with each other and the larger public.

Jan Mun is working on two long-term projects: Greenpoint Bioremediation Project an artist-led creative cleanup and community partnership to innovate bioremediation practices for residents in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (one of the most polluted urban areas in the country) and ProfileUS: Invasive Species, which examines the biopolitics of the migrations of non-native plants and people in the United States.

Jason Wing

Jason Wing is a Sydney-based artist who strongly identifies with his Chinese and Aboriginal heritage. Wing began as a street artist and has since expanded his practice to incorporate photomedia, installation and painting. Influenced by his bi-cultural upbringing, Wing explores the ongoing challenges that impact his wider community. Calling into question our understanding of history and of our current socio-political reality, Wing repurposes everyday objects and imagery, creating works that are both visually confronting and deceptively simple.
Jason Wing holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Graphic Design, Sydney Graphics College. Selected solo exhibitions include: House Wigger, Alaska Projects, Sydney and People of Substance, Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, Virginia, USA, 2012. Selected group exhibitions include; Making Change, National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Bungaree: The First Australian, Mosman Art Gallery, Mosman and Cold Eels and Distant Thoughts, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne.
