Through a methodical deconstruction of cinematic norms, Ariane Loze strips her video-performances down to their most basic, structural inner workings. Her post-minimalist aesthetic brings together conceptual expression and home-made execution underpinned by an immediately recognizable narrative made up of static shots of a straightforward action or event. Loze produces her videos autonomously: she take on the roles of director, screenwriter, editor, dresser, and sound and lighting technician, as well as plays all characters.
Ariane Loze has exhibited work at S.M.A.K., Ghent; KANAL Centre Pompidou, Brussels; Centre d’art Contemporain Chanot, Paris, among others.

In his work Malte Bartsch combines childish naivety with technical refinement. He tries to solve the questionable position of the given truth. His installations work with physical laws but also dissolve them.
Malte Bartsch has exhibited work at Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin; Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg, among others.maltebartsch.de
