Paul Kuimet

Paul Kuimet works with photographic installations and 16 mm films, the subject matter of which ranges from landscapes and architecture to objects and works of art mainly from the Modernist discourse. Kuimet’s photographs are often displayed as lightboxes in darkened spaces, which heightens the viewers’ relationships to the physical and pictorial space. His films that are constructed as continuous loops are displayed in relation to the existing exhibition space further emphasizing their sculptural qualities rather than a narrative drive.

Paul Kuimet has exhibited work at WNTRP, Berlin; BOZAR- Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels; and Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM), Tallinn, among others.

Andy Leleisi’uao

“Andy Leleisi’uao’s art is about people and how they get on together as lovers, as families, as insiders and outsiders. As immigrants. News can be good and bad and it must be lived with… He shows how some lives are lived way over the line while also attempting to maintain and affirm love. Inconsistencies are included because opposites always co-exist.” Text by Ron Brownson, Senior Curator New Zealand and Pacific Art, Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki.

Andy Leleisi’uao has exhibited work at Bergman Gallery, New York; National Culture and Arts FoundationTaiwan; and Bridge Guard, Slovakia, among others.
