Stefania Strouza’s practice explores how cultural narratives of diverse epochs connect to produce new identity projects. It examines the spatial mobility of such narratives, the exchange of forms and symbols across large distances, and the cross-cultural syncretisms that emerge from it. The artist materializes these ideas through sculptural works and installations that draw associations between the symbolic world of objects and notions of temporality, geography and the body.
Stefania Strouza has exhibited work at The 3rd Industrial Art Biennial, Croatia; NEON, Greece; and Neue Galerie Innsbruck, Austria, among others.

In her artistic practice, Katarzyna Przezwańska combines nature and architecture in an effort to “improve the quality of human life and to make art useful”. The artist is inspired by both vernacular architecture and the 20th century classics as well as geological phenomena and vegetative processes. Przezwańska creates architectural interventions, installations, and sculptures, where she often uses natural materials such as rocks, minerals, and plants.
Katarzyna Przezwańska has exhibited work at Galeria Dawid Radziszewski, Poland; Museum of Modern Art, Poland; and Abteiberg Museum, Germany, among others.

Through a methodical deconstruction of cinematic norms, Ariane Loze strips her video-performances down to their most basic, structural inner workings. Her post-minimalist aesthetic brings together conceptual expression and home-made execution underpinned by an immediately recognizable narrative made up of static shots of a straightforward action or event. Since 2008, Loze produces her videos autonomously: she take on the roles of director, screenwriter, editor, dresser, and sound and lighting technician, as well as plays all characters.
Ariane Loze has exhibited work at Riga Biennial of Contemporary Art, Riga; S.M.A.K., Ghent; and KANAL Centre Pompidou, Brussels, among others.
