Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz
Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz produce installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. Their films capture performances in front of the camera, often upsetting normative historical narratives and conventions of spectatorship, as figures and actions across time are staged, layered and re-imagined. Their performers are choreographers, artists and musicians, with whom they are having a long-term conversation about the conditions of performance, the violent history of visibility, the pathologization of bodies, as well as companionship, glamour and resistance.

Laurie Kang’s practice includes photography, sculpture and video in site-responsive installations. She uses materials in ways that emphasize their inherent sensitivities and connections to human and nonhuman matter. Regarding bodies as situated, political, and simultaneously always in relation as ongoing processes, her work exists in literal and metaphoric states of becoming and unfixity. She engages ‘mis-use’: rupturing rules, processes and functions of mediums and materials, stimulating relational, unknown affects and changes.

Stine Marie Jacobsen
Stine Marie Jacobsen is a conceptual artist working to decode violence and law through participatory means. To give participants a collaborative and dialogical space, Jacobsen creates open structured sociocultural and participatory projects with clearly defined themes, with a focus on film, language, gender, violence, death, taboos, anonymity, and psychology. The artist conducts performative experiments, and creates platforms for critical thinking and new ways of looking at ethics, identity, control, fear and trust.
