Yann Pocreau’s research has been focused on the narrative contributions suggested by light when it is staged in specific places. In his most recent projects, he puts forward traces of light and it’s presence as a subject. Though he works mostly with photography, Pocreau has experimented with other media, such as installation, animation, and sculpture, as he developed a series of interventions and works around artificial light, its materiality and its essential contribution to the artist’s photographic thought.

Loup Sarion’s practice lies between painting and sculpture, where color is subsumed by material. The works’ overlapping textures relate to the slippery nature of language, specifically to the tongue—the organ of language. Sarion pays particular consideration to color, surface and texture, often echoing the phenomena of condensation, skin perspiration, and bodily fluids in his work.
Loup Sarion has exhibited work at C L E A R I N G, New York City; Berthold Pott, Cologne; and Formato Cómodo, Madrid, among others.

“Andy Leleisi’uao’s art is about people and how they get on together as lovers, as families, as insiders and outsiders. As immigrants. News can be good and bad and it must be lived with… He shows how some lives are lived way over the line while also attempting to maintain and affirm love. Inconsistencies are included because opposites always co-exist.” Text by Ron Brownson, Senior Curator New Zealand and Pacific Art, Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki.
