Kyoung eun Kang

Kyoung eun Kang’s work focuses on the small, simple everyday gestures and rituals that we tend to see as mundane, but have great significance. She captures subtle human interactions and behaviors to better understand human nature and the bonds between us–bonds that bridge time and space to connect couples, families, communities, strangers, and even the dead. Using an interdisciplinary approach, she explores geographical and cultural identity as well as universal human themes such as affection and attachment.

Kyoung eun Kang has exhibited at A.I.R. gallery, Brooklyn; The Korean Cultural Center, Washington D.C.; and Collar Works, Troy among others.

Mandy Espezel

Mandy Espezel is an interdisciplinary artist working with paintings and site-specific installations. Espezel’s works engage in an intersectional feminist-phenomenological discourse and investigate visceral representations of anxiety, desire, humour, and failure. She explores how intuitive processes manifest bodily knowledge, while questioning the division of the material and the conceptual and addressing the authority of a hierarchical-binary-system.

Mandy Espezel has exhibited work at Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Canada; Trükimuuseum Gallery, Estonia; and Space Gachang Gallery, South Korea, among others.
