Larissa Kopp & Florian Aschka
Larissa Kopp & Florian Aschka work with staged photography and utilize performance as a tool to investigate queer strategies as well as mythology and the notion of a collective cultural memory. This extends to video, interactive happenings as well as performative interventions in which boundaries of prevailing gender roles, constructed exoticisms, and standardization processes are confronted with the notion of a queer utopia.
Larissa Kopp & Florian Aschka has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland; Kunsthaus Graz, Austria; and Belvedere 21, Austria, among others.larissakopp.com

Julie Stavad’s sculptures and sculptural installations brings the body into play with jumps in scale and through contrasting effects in materials. Her sculptural practice brings together the domains of the sculptural object, spoken and written language and the body into an associative interaction. An interplay that allows the silent material to speak, while the linguistic utterances in a title or text based work can become concrete, thus coupling different sensory modalities.
Julie Stavad has exhibited work at Holstebro Kunstmuseum, Kunsthal Aarhus, and Kunsthal NORD, all Denmark, among others.juliestavad.com
