Martha Skou is an interdisciplinary artist who moves freely between audible and visual worlds. Both analytical and experimental, her work toys with opposites in color, shape and/or sound. She has created personal universes surrounding her work both in her collaborations and solo projects. Her language is abstract and atmospheric, with compositions in spatial formats as well as two-dimensional media.
Martha Skou has exhibited her work at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Telfair Museums, Savannah; and Pioneer Works, New York, among others.

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.
