Yoshihito Mizuuchi’s works originates from experiments with tape recorders in his elementary school days, when he mixed/collaged various sounds from different sources to create original and personal tapes. This approach to sound has determined his artistic process ever since. He attempts to find diverse significance in everyday objects from their juxtaposition and transformation. Mizuuchi combines one thing with another in fragments from various sources such as a wide variety of media, forms of expression and any phenomenon around us to free/subvert our perception and existing meanings.

Susanne Thiemann “cocoons” are alive. The artist and basket weaver from Munich turns frayed material into images; she interweaves chairs like intimate beings and weaves rubbery pillows that are so crumpled that they appear to be amorphous beings. Textile techniques have long since achieved independence in art as subtle yet strong forms of expression that play ironically and critically with feminine connotations. In her work, Susanne Thiemann brings the perfection of traditional crafts to the radical freedom of purpose of art. The sculptures of Susanne Thiemann are composed of thin monochrome plastic hoses, colored electric wires and thick strips of shredded car tires. She selects pieces of lost property and remaining stocks of mass-produced, hardly decomposing products; the materials that trigger many connotations because they belong to our everyday life and use.
Susanne Thiemann, born 1955, passed the Master Craftsman Examination of Basketry in 1986. While attending the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts Salzburg, Austria she studied contemporary sculpture with New York-based artists Nancy Davidson and Frida Baranek. Her work has been exhibited internationally.
