Jens Settergren is concerned with the production of collective imaginaries, contemporary mythologies, desire, and visual culture. His works reflect how these subjects are expressed in images, objects, and language. Working individually and collectively, he explores correlations between technology, nature, escapism, and power. Lately his work has taken the form of immersive installations synthesizing different means of expression revolving around the notions of simulation and synesthesia – incorporating smell, temperature, sound, and color as a strategy to evoke various mental imagery.

Antonio Fiorentino’s research developed over the years under the umbrella of minimal intervention. The artist seeks to bring art back to nature by finding value in things that already exist, isolating them, and framing them within new contexts. Fiorentino is interested in situations of transformation as well as natural processes that create new forms through change.
Antonio Fiorentino was born in Barletta, Italy in 1987. He was selected to participate in the CSAV Artists Research Laboratory at Fondazione Antonio Ratti, and was the winner of eighth edition of the Talent Prize in Rome.
