Artist

Fatima Moallim

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.

Artist

Taryn Kneteman

Taryn Kneteman documents moving bodies and changes of state with video, sculpture, and works on paper. Using tactile, process-intensive working methods that offer chances for unexpected intervention–from materials, weather, technological glitches, and feedback–she combines stretches of habitual routine with gestures of dream-like divergence. Her work considers the cyclical nature of seemingly permanent materials and reflects on the intricacies of their transitions.

Taryn Kneteman has exhibited at Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff;  Art Gallery of Alberta and SNAP Gallery, both Edmonton, among others.

Artist

Kenji Yamada

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.
