Fatima Moallim is a self-taught artist who works with performance, drawing and installation. The foundation of her performance-acts lies in spatial experience where she often appears with her back against the viewer. In Moallim’s installations, drawings expand into the room blending boundaries between the figurative and the abstract, the self and the other, memory and oblivion.
Fatima Moallim has exhibited work at Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Göteborg; and KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art, Berlin, among others.

Szilvia Bolla’s work explores the interaction between humans and artifacts by combining photography, sculpture, and installation. Her practice, which she describes as cryptophotographic, is the result of light-sensitive crystals reacting to chemicals in photographic darkroom experiments. Interested in matter as a lively agent, the artist engages with new materialism and feminist corporeality to evoke survivalist narratives, and analyzes the relationship between the human body and technology.
Szilvia Bolla has exhibited work at Trafó Gallery, Budapest; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and Stefan Gierowski Foundation, Warsaw, among others.bollaszilvia.com

Kenji Yamada is an artist who carries out social practice and activities to share conﬂicts and paradoxes within international society. These conﬂicts and paradoxes emerge from application and misuse of ethnographical wisdoms, remains and modern heritages, including war ruins in a particular cultural area. He complexly questions undiﬀerentiated historical views and public interest by cooperating with citizens to publicize and reveal historical artifacts that have been buried by the construction of public spaces to society.
Kenji Yamada has exhibited at 3331 Arts Chiyoda, Tokyo; Yang Art Museum, Beijing; and Morgue Gallery, Chelsea College of Arts, London, among others.yamadakenji.org
