Tommy Kha’s work is a mapping of Asian Diaspora and possible spaces for queerness. He is interested in photographic imaging of Otherness. In his practice, he often rephotographs cutouts to create pictures that straddle between self-portrait, still life, and landscape. Kha’s work is a continuation of his mother’s photographs from in 1984—a year after she fled Vietnam. His mother’s images depict gatherings, celebration, and liberation, whereas Kha’s picture making is performative and collaborative.

Kubra Khademi considers herself as a multidisciplinary artist. Interested in subjects of female identity such as sexuality, she has—for the past few years—been creating performances and performative videos where her body is always at the center. Recently, using personal stories as raw material for art, she has returned to her drawing practices of self-portraits and images of women.
Kubra Khademi has exhibited work at Galerie Eric Mouchet, Paris; MUCEM, Marseille; and Palais de Tokyo, Paris, among others.

Maria Meinild is an artist working primarily in video. Alongside her use of the moving image, she creates installations and objects both separate and in relation to the screen. In her works, she combines methods from the worlds of film and theatre with investigations of the staging of everyday life, patterns of social behaviour, and our ideas of normality.
