Yael Frank is a multi-disciplinary artist working mainly in sculpture and video. Her satiric projects conceptually hack cultural and textual systems, arguing for emotional connections between historical memory and esoteric consumerist goods. Frank employs comedic strategies to expose multiple points of view on the precarious state of ethical concepts. Her work aims to test the seriousness of political ethos by orchestrating situations that are physically beyond language.
Yael Frank has exhibited work at The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel; The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; and FuturDome, Milano, among others.

Sam Keogh works with collage, drawing, sculpture, performance and installation. He builds intricate environments with idiosyncratic detail in which he hosts live performances. These installations incorporate collage, small sculptures and found objects; shifting between artwork made by Keogh, props used by the performer and technologies made by the characters in the universes he constructs. Keogh’s performances interweave research on diverse topics into meandering semi-fictional monologues that make surprising connections between political movements, biological processes, archaeology, housing, science fiction, or pop cultural phenomena.
Sam Keogh has exhibited work at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, London; The Centre Pompidou, Paris; Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin; and Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale, among others.
