Sam Keogh works across collage, drawing, sculpture, performance and installation. In recent work, Keogh has built intricate environments which host live performances. These installations incorporate collage, sculpture and found objects which spillover with idiosyncratic detail; shifting between artwork made by Keogh, props used by the performer and ambiguous technologies made by the characters in the universes he constructs. As the artist describes: “materials, memories and affects begin to smudge into each other in this indeterminate space, until a sticky cognitive map begins to unfold”.
Sam Keogh has exhibited work at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, London; The Centre Pompidou, Paris; and Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale, among others.

Josué Mejia’s work starts from historical revisions in order to acknowledge the processes that shaped the past; he traces different story lines that allow him to employ historical “inaccuracies” in order to produce alternative narratives that function as counter-histories to the official version. He is currently interviewing objects that were embedded in the narratives of twentieth-century exhibitions between Mexico and the United States in order to evidence their participation in complex diplomatic agreements.
Josué Mejia has exhibited work at Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah; and Embajada Gallery, San Juan, among others.
