Martha Skou is an interdisciplinary artist who moves freely between audible and visual worlds. Both analytical and experimental, her work toys with opposites in color, shape and/or sound. She has created personal universes surrounding her work both in her collaborations and solo projects. Her language is abstract and atmospheric, with compositions in spatial formats as well as two-dimensional media.
Martha Skou has exhibited her work at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Telfair Museums, Savannah; and Pioneer Works, New York, among others.

Samuel Henne’s work is concerned with the complex interrelationships between sculpture and photography, particularly how sculptural objects are represented, displayed and transformed. Recently, Henne has been exploring museum displays and cabinets, as well as the underlying strategies of archiving sculptures in historical and archaeological contexts. In his practice, Henne intertwines formal, art historical and contemporary aspects to create images.
