Erik Steffensen’s photographs use subtle tones in grey, black and white and monocolors to evoke the remembrance of images from the art history, referencing paintings, poetry and fine art photography. Steffensen produces spare and unpopulated images that conjure an open mind.
Erik Steffensen (born in Valby, Copenhagen) studied the Philosophy and Art History at the University of Copenhagen and the Danish Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. He lives and works in Copenhagen.

Lotta Törnroth combines image and text to explore her curiosity towards the sea and the contradictory feeling of simultaneous calmness and restlessness that catches her whenever she is close to the water. The starting point in her works is always in some way true, historical or mythical. Realities are layered upon each other through people she meets and words she reads, until a carefully crafted story is selected and there is no truth left. She examines everything as through a self-portrait, realizing that her works speak more of her own self than about the subject. In this way, even though she often does not use her own words to tell her story, it is still hers.
Lotta Törnroth (born 1981, Stockholm, Sweden) completed her Master of Arts at the Aalto University, School of Art, Design and Architecture in Helsinki, Finland and her Bachelor degree from the University of Gothenburg School of Photography, Sweden. She has received grants and has participated in exhibitions and photo festivals in Sweden, Denmark and Finland. In May 2014 she won the Victor Fellowship from Hasselblad Foundation. This year she will release her artist book To Wait For the Inevitable: Narratives From the Sea.

Adolfo Bimer’s practice, through paintings and their displacements, focuses on a material and metaphorical innerness of the human body. His recent work is based on research about direct interactions from both the traditional and industrial world, not only of painting but from the medical and the construction fields as well. Bimer’s body of work questions health and disease; the body’s movement, fluids, organs and textures. He looks at the development of medical technology imaging systems such as x-rays, microscopy and anatomical drawing, as ways to understand a body that we otherwise would not be able to see.
Adolfo Bimer (born in 1985 Santiago, Chile) currently lives and works in Santiago, Chile. His solo exhibitions include Témpanos de Fe, Nueveochenta Contemporary Art, Bogotá, 2013; Las Inseguridades, Patricia Ready Gallery, Santiago, 2013; Tactismo, Revolver, Lima, 2012; and X, Museum of Contemporary Art, Santiago, 2011. He was included in Younger than Jesus: Artist Directory, Phaidon, 2008. Bimer also participates in the Chile-based art collective Sagrada Mercancía.
