İnci Furni contemplates the constructed spaces of social life and researches the possibilities of new and as-yet-undefined fields of individual existence outside of these. Furni’s inner world and everyday life fill the background of these research processes. Dreams, imaginations and content are brought into the works through inward processes of exploration without designating an individual quest or inner journey.
İnci Furni has exhibited work at Arter, Istanbul; Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna; and the 2009 Istanbul Biennial, among others.incifurni.com.tr

Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz
Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz produce installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. Their films capture performances in front of the camera, often upsetting normative historical narratives and conventions of spectatorship, as figures and actions across time are staged, layered and re-imagined. Their performers are choreographers, artists and musicians, with whom they are having a long-term conversation about the conditions of performance, the violent history of visibility, the pathologization of bodies, as well as companionship, glamour and resistance.

Loup Sarion’s practice lies between painting and sculpture, where color is subsumed by material. The works’ overlapping textures relate to the slippery nature of language, specifically to the tongue—the organ of language. Sarion pays particular consideration to color, surface and texture, often echoing the phenomena of condensation, skin perspiration, and bodily fluids in his work.
Loup Sarion has exhibited work at C L E A R I N G, New York City; Berthold Pott, Cologne; and Formato Cómodo, Madrid, among others.loupsarion.com
