Yuri Yim’s immersive works integrate images, sounds and sensory inputs to stimulate viewers’ participation. Yuri Yim selects sites with the intent to reverse or exploit harsh, and precarious conditions. She creates situations using the simultaneous collection of insignificant events, memories and recording from her quotidian documentation. Yuri Yim’s practice of engaging with her narrative imagination influences the relationships she enters with fictional or real figures, spaces, and things. She builds narratives around unnamed objects and their contacts wherein clandestine relationships between personified things may arise.
Yuri Yim lives in Seoul, Korea. She has been featured in S2, Platform Place 629, 2011; Campfire in the End, Dongduk Women’s University Yeji Hall, 2013; Contributing to Disaster, Art Space Pool, 2014; and the Seoul Art Space_Geumcheon as an artist in residence.

Nova Milne create moments of connection or disruption, often taking the form of encounters across the breach of time. These sometimes reveal invisible or poetic connections between minor-historical events, and shared fictional or popular references. Through their increasingly expanded video installations, they unleash the occult potential of recombining anachronistic elements, forging a magical sympathy between documentary or amature sources and fabricated material. Their process invents a de-centered point of view and the question of inter-subjectivity forms an ongoing curiosity, alongside considerations of time, mysticism, longing, and empathy.
Nova Milne is a relationship that began when the two artists met as teenagers in 1998, and started exhibiting in 2003. They are recent alumni of the Residency Program at the Bemis Center, Omaha and have undertaken several residencies, including at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, and Artspace, Sydney. Their solo exhibitions include the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia; The Physics Room, New Zealand; and Artspace, Australia. Other exhibitions include venues such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia; The Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; The Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania; The Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne; 104 and The Musee Rodin, Paris.

Chun-Yi Chang’s work focuses on the presentation of light reality within digital images. In recent years, her works have emphasized the exploration of imagination and experience. She accomplishes coexistence of the eternal and the ever-changing by alternating motion and motionless scenes, and reorganizes the different facets of a single phenomenon into plausible events which are aberrations of normality. She uses the “floating light” and “glimpse” of digital images to remodel a sense of light reality that wavers between reality and virtual reality.
Born in Taipei, and based in Paris, Chun-Yi Chang received an MA from the Rouen College of the Arts and her PhD the University of Paris Sorbonne. In 2009, she was sponsored by the Ministry of Culture for a residency at 18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica. She was also awarded the Gerda Henkel Stiftung scholarship in 2013. Chang’s participation in exhibitions include the 5th and 11th White Night (la Nuit Blanche) and 6th Young Artists Biennale, Paris, and French-Chinese Young Artists, Today Art Museum, Peking.
