Artist

Francesco Simeti

Francesco Simeti creates site-specific installations, which the artist describes as “aesthetically enchanting scenes” that reveal a complex subtext upon closer inspection. Since the late nineties, he has explored the environmental crisis, the numerous conflicts and consequent displacements of people, through sculptures and video animations. The artist conceive of these as a form of collage.

Francesco Simeti has exhibited work at Castello di Rivoli, Torino, Italy; Mass Moca, North Adams; and Rhode Island School of Design among others.

Artist

Joani Tremblay

Joani Tremblay investigates the perception of place through the relationship between landscape and its simulations and reproductions. Instead of painting from traditional observed landscapes, the artist assembles constructed ideas of a place from a variety of sources including advertisements, postcards, Instagram architecture influencers, social media, mass communications, and field researches. Tremblay assembles these images into digital collages to test hundreds of possibilities before applying paint.

Joani Tremblay has exhibited work at Harper’s Gallery, New York; Marie-Laure Fleisch Gallery, Brussels; and Interstate Projects, Brooklyn, among others.

Artist

Frank Yefeng Wang

Frank Wang Yefeng works across various media, including 3D animation, video installation, sculpture, and writing. His migratory experience at a young age drives him to explore his reality as a multicultural individual. The estrangement of the origin and the absence of home turn “in-betweenness” into his constant dwelling. Ambivalent characters play essential roles in Yefeng’s works, where he explores the transmission of affect and the in-between states of nomadic subjects in both virtual and physical realms.

Frank Wang Yefeng has exhibited work at BRIC Biennial, Brooklyn; Hyundai Motorstudio Beijing, China; and Vanguard Gallery, Shanghai, among others.
