Laurie Kang’s practice includes photography, sculpture and video in site-responsive installations. She uses materials in ways that emphasize their inherent sensitivities and connections to human and nonhuman matter. Regarding bodies as situated, political, and simultaneously always in relation as ongoing processes, her work exists in literal and metaphoric states of becoming and unfixity. She engages ‘mis-use’: rupturing rules, processes and functions of mediums and materials, stimulating relational, unknown affects and changes.

Stine Marie Jacobsen
Stine Marie Jacobsen is a conceptual artist working to decode violence and law through participatory means. To give participants a collaborative and dialogical space, Jacobsen creates open structured sociocultural and participatory projects with clearly defined themes, with a focus on film, language, gender, violence, death, taboos, anonymity, and psychology. The artist conducts performative experiments, and creates platforms for critical thinking and new ways of looking at ethics, identity, control, fear and trust.

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.
