Sara Cwynar works with photography, video, and book-making. Her work involves a constant archiving and re-presentation of collected visual materials. She is interested in the way that images morph, accumulate, endure and change in meaning and value over time, and the effect this has on a collective worldview.

Tommy Kha’s work is a mapping of Asian Diaspora and possible spaces for queerness. He is interested in photographic imaging of Otherness. In his practice, he often rephotographs cutouts to create pictures that straddle between self-portrait, still life, and landscape. Kha’s work is a continuation of his mother’s photographs from in 1984—a year after she fled Vietnam. His mother’s images depict gatherings, celebration, and liberation, whereas Kha’s picture making is performative and collaborative.

Maria Meinild is an artist working primarily in video. Alongside her use of the moving image, she creates installations and objects both separate and in relation to the screen. In her works, she combines methods from the worlds of film and theatre with investigations of the staging of everyday life, patterns of social behaviour, and our ideas of normality.
