In her practice, Esther Hovers investigates how power, politics and control are exercised through urban planning and the use of public space. She was trained as a photographer but creates installations in which photographs, drawings, text and film play an equal part. She is interested in finding poetic translations for power structures and technological developments.

Thiago Honório’s research starts from a transdisciplinary matrix. It is fueled by a transit between the ordinary and the extraordinary, by an encounter of different temporalities from the experience between the private and the public spheres, from different kinds of knowledge and exchanges, based on procedures such as dislocations, collections, appropriations, cuts and assemblies.
ektor garcia is multidisciplinary artist who approaches sculptural installation through wide-ranging experiments with craft techniques and materials. Throughout his practice, he develops a lexicon of crochet, weaving and fibre-work, including the use of ceramic, metal, leatherwork, found materials, and the principles of assemblage and social sculpture. Garcia is in constant pursuit of modes of making and presentation that trouble the division between so-called high and low culture.
ektor garcia has exhibited work at Art Basel, Switzerland and kurimanzutto, Mexico City, among others.
