Jonas St. Michael

Jonas St. Michael’s photographic practice examines the nature of representation and narrativity through image production. More recently, his practice has shifted to making photographic and video works that are conspicuously constructed with the aim of creating an ostensible reality.

Jonas St. Michael was born in Montreal and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Goldsmiths, University of London. He has exhibited works at MOMENTA Biennale de l’image, Montreal; Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin; and OK Harris Works of Art, New York, among others.

Tomasz Kowalski

Tomasz Kowalski is part of a movement of young Polish artists embracing a form of “new surrealism.” His interest lay in the discrete hauntological aspects of the everyday and a paranoia towards reality. He expresses this discrete sensibility through a mix of parallel narratives and biography, and often collaborates with his family to make objects using various mediums. In Kowalski’s paintings, drawings, installations and sound pieces, the everyday morphs into the tragicomic, lending his imagery an enigmatic and psychedelic quality.

Tomasz Kowalski has exhibited work at Centre Pompidou, Paris; mumok, Vienna, and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, among others.

Javier Barrios Gutiérrez

Gutiérrez runs an editorial project titled Ediciones Barrio Boy’z, in which he publishes his own work and collaborations with other authors.

Javier Barrios Gutiérrez has exhibited work at Proyectos LA, Los Angeles; Páramo Gallery, Guadalajara, Mexico; and Museo de Arte de Zapopan MAZ, Mexico, among others.
