Paul Kuimet works with photographic installations and 16 mm films, the subject matter of which ranges from landscapes and architecture to objects and works of art mainly from the Modernist discourse. Kuimet’s photographs are often displayed as lightboxes in darkened spaces, which heightens the viewers’ relationships to the physical and pictorial space. His films that are constructed as continuous loops are displayed in relation to the existing exhibition space further emphasizing their sculptural qualities rather than a narrative drive.

Linda Reif’s photographic image production tends toward sculpture and abstraction. Her work is strongly linked to an interest in lens-based media and methods reflect the unsentimental way she approaches photography. Her main focus lies in the distortion, the non-glossy impact of images, while investigating the vulnerability of photography and the poetic impact of sculptural display.
