Sandra Dukic and Boris Glamocanin

Artist group Sandra Dukic & Boris Glamocanin work in the field of art activism in their home country of Bosnia and Herzegovina. After the Yugoslav wars, the Bosnian city of Ljubija was the most dramatic example of a marginalized community with a large population of people forgotten by their new government. The artists viewed this city in light of a long-term series of projects that would act as a setting for them to answer the question, “What will the future bring this country?” The project is envisaged to have a number of chapters in the series. First and foremost, Dukic & Glamocanin look to raise public awareness about Ljubija and its continued marginalization by the govenment. The most recent project in the series, Ljubija Kills, emerged from the study of and participation in activist and humanitarian work with women in the local community. Ljubija Kills raises questions, draws attention and opens a discussion as it gives a clear artistic attitude about the place where life ends and which currently has no positive platform for future development.

Patrick Tuttofuoco

Patrick Tuttofuoco creates innovative imagined structures, architectural assemblages, films and animations motivated by the urban environment as a site of constant transformation. The use of light and movement characterize Tuttofuoco’s works, which combine immediate sensorial allure with the power to trigger profound theoretical responses. Frequently working in collaboration, Tuttofuoco’s diverse artistic practice seeks to forge new dialogues between public and private, between individuals and the environment they inhabit. Operating on an open, communicative level his works explore architecture as the product of the energy and combined efforts of the people who constructed and live in it, as a human energy that lives through its functionality.

Patrick Tuttofuoco (born 1974, Milan, Italy) lives and works in Berlin and has shown extensively internationally, in both solo and group shows. Recent exhibitions of the artist’s work include: Things are queer, MARTa Herford, Germany; Hundred Stories about Love, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan; Italics: Italian Art Between Tradition and Revolution 1968-2008, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Palazzo Grassi, Venice; TURN ON: Contemporary Italian Art, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Ontario; 10th Havana Biennial: Integration and Resistance in the Global AgeDandelion, Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; 50th Venice Biennial; Folkestone Triennial,
England; Musée d’Art Contemporain de Nimes, France; Shanghai Biennale; and Revolving Landscape, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin.

Alberto Tadiello

The work of Alberto Tadiello challenges the boundaries between seemingly disconnected materials, disciplines, or phenomena by searching for their ‘hidden’ links. In many cases Tadiello’s works are ephemeral, occuring in latent states waiting to be activated or resting dormant.

Alberto Tadiello (born 1983, Montecchio Maggiore, Italy) received his education in Visual Arts from IUAV University, Venice. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, with group exhibitions including T2 – Turin Triennale; 50 Moons of Saturn, Foundation Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Italian Art To Be Listened To, NCCA, Moscow; Experimental Station, CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid; and Terre Vulnerabili, Hangar Bicocca, Milan. He has also shown at Artissima, Turin, and Art Basel. He won the Furla Prize in 2009 and has taken part in residency programs at Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art, Paris; Gasworks International Residency Programme, London; Villa Arson, Nice; HIAP, Helsinki; and Viafarini, Milan.
