Valentina Furian

Valentina Furian’s practice explores the connection between reality and fiction, pushing the boundary between this duality. Her research is focused on the existing relationship between humans and natural beings; examining the worth of the wilderness, animal and human domestication as a kind of power. As a result, her landscapes are frequently filled with non-human performativity.

Valentina Furian has exhibited work at MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts, Rome; Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Paris; and Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, among others.

Mandy Gehrt

In her practice, Mandy Gehrt engages with forms remembering and preserving, exploring cultures of commemoration and the construction of history. Her interest extends to private collections, diverse archiving methods, and rituals of remembrance. Gehrt crafts personal collections and artistic archives, selectively presenting them in exhibitions, public spaces, or educational institutions. Her approach is characterized by exploration, as she continuously uncovers novel forms and displays to bring forgotten or overlooked histories to light, fostering a meaningful dialogue around them.

Mandy Gehrt has exhibited work at Artwall Gallery, Czech Republic; Kultur Leioa Auditorium, Spain; and Museo Rautenstrauch-Joest, Germany, among others.

Studio #215


Tora Schultz

Tora Schultz uses sculpture to explore the social dynamics and invisible gender-bias data that exist in the power of object language. Schultz recontextualizes everyday objects through basic sculptural displacements and tragicomics, frequently referencing institutional design and body stereotypes. She extrapolates the subtle social tensions present in objects around us by paying persistent attention to the specifics of material and form.

Tora Schultz has exhibited work at O-Overgaden, Copenhagen; Den Frie, Copenhagen; and Konstnärshuset, Stockholm, among others.
