Matilda Aslizadeh

Matilda Aslizadeh deploys a dense visual language positioned between photography, video, sculpture and animation to evoke the complexity and saturation of contemporary media landscapes. Her video installations draw on a large array of visual influences – both esoteric and popular – to rethink narrative structures that persist in Western culture and its global impact. Her current project interrogates the agency of the economy under neoliberalism through the lens of a horror film.

Matilda Aslizadeh has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto CanadaArt Souterrain, Montreal; and Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards.

Duy Hoàng

Duy Hoàng’s practice focuses on the links between the connections/disconnections one experiences with their surrounding environment, between the mundanes to the phenomena, and from the potential of growth to the inevitability of decay. His work focuses on our relationship to the minute details around us in conjunction with the vast environment we are in. Hoàng entered the United States as a Vietnamese immigrant during his adolescent years and the transitional moment triggered his necessity for intensive observation and awareness.
