Maria D. Rapicavoli
Maria D. Rapicavoli works across film, photography, and site- specific installation. Her work explores conditions of power, alienation, invisibility, and displacement through a critique of global economic and political systems. Drawing on her native Sicily as a place of departure and arrival, Rapicavoli explores the sea and the sky as sites of transit where individual narratives intersect with international politics. She seeks to make tangible the ways structures of power, taking place out of sight, impact our everyday lives
Maria D. Rapicavoli has exhibited work at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Palazzo Reale, Milan; and Whitechapel Gallery, London, among others.mdrspace.com

Pamela Council is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist creating fountains for Black joy. Guided by material, cultural, and metaphysical quests, Council’s practice embodies a darkly humorous and inventive Afro-Americana camp aesthetic she refers to as BLAXIDERMY. Through this lens, Council uses sculpture, architecture, writing, and performance to shed light on under-examined and under-valued narratives.

Wieteke Heldens works primarily with painting. She uses personal experiences and thoughts and turns them into abstract concepts. Heldens creates all her work according to a self-devised algorithm by giving herself instructions based on a starting position and works towards the desired result. It is her way of getting a grasp on everything happening around us.
Wieteke Heldens has exhibited work at Kunst Museum Den Haag, The Hague; Royal Palace Amsterdam; Borzo Gallery, Amsterdam, among others.
