Iria Vrettou

Iria Vrettou’s practice focuses on concepts and modes of hybridity as research and practice methods, while also addressing aspects of hand-drawn animation in relation to larger cinematic and performative practices. Her research focuses on environmental and social issues, as well as the function of the ‘screen’ in the context of cultural production and political processes. She also investigates the creation of art works that can function as disquieting, complete spatiotemporal experiences.

Iria Vrettou has exhibited work at Onassis Stegi, Athens; CYLINDER gallery, Seoul; ERGO Collective, Athens; and Space 52, Athens, among others.

Current Resident: Nov 1, 2022–Jan 31, 2023

Johanna Mirabel

Johanna Mirabel explores pictorial representation, shifting between abstraction, expressionism, and realism. She stages contradictions and juxtapositions using lush vegetation, partially present and disparate objects to evoke the inherent complexity of life between different cultures. Inspired by Glissant’s Creolisation, Mirabel creates pictorial forms that appear to be in constant motion, in which the characters are embedded, nested, and ready to merge in their moving environment. The artist invites us to inhabit her work, mentally exploring them as parallel realities, as she moves between painting and sculpture.

Johanna Mirabel has exhibited work at Espace des Femmes Antoinette Fouque, Paris; Luce Gallery, Torino; and Manifesta, Lyon, among others.

Current Resident: Jul 1, 2022–Jun 30, 2023

Studio #305


Sarah Tortora

Sarah Tortora draws inspiration from canonical sculptures, urban infrastructure, and museum display. Her work alternates between relational warmth and misidentification, and functions parallel to language to create intuitive replicas of archetypal objects. Tortora’s work conjures the psychic displacement necessary to comprehend the cultural displacement such archetypes can induce. The artist accepts the premise that every equestrian monument is truly a Trojan horse, and questions legacies of labor across geological time.

Sarah Tortora has exhibited work at Ulterior Gallery, New York; C. Grimaldis Gallery, Baltimore; and NADA x Foreland, Catskill, among others.
