Yael Frank is a multi-disciplinary artist working mainly in sculpture and video. Her satiric projects conceptually hack cultural and textual systems, arguing for emotional connections between historical memory and esoteric consumerist goods. Frank employs comedic strategies to expose multiple points of view on the precarious state of ethical concepts. Her work aims to test the seriousness of political ethos by orchestrating situations that are physically beyond language.
Yael Frank has exhibited work at The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel; The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; and FuturDome, Milano, among others.

Marta Krześlak uses video, collage, electrical components and found material to create kinetic and spatial installations. Her work constructs landscapes from both memory and imagination, while experimenting with scale and kitsch to renegotiate decisions already made within discarded objects, pushing them into the realm of the absurd. By putting her work in motion, she provokes a choreography of movements between object and visitor, creating an ever-shifting frame of reference through which to view the universe.
Marta Krześlak has exhibited work at Zachęta National Gallery Project Room, Warsaw; Gdansk City Gallery; and Muzeum of Art, Łódź, among others.
