Pamela Council is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist creating fountains for Black joy. Guided by material, cultural, and metaphysical quests, Council’s practice embodies a darkly humorous and inventive Afro-Americana camp aesthetic she refers to as BLAXIDERMY. Through this lens, Council uses sculpture, architecture, writing, and performance to shed light on under-examined and under-valued narratives.

Wieteke Heldens works primarily with painting. She uses personal experiences and thoughts and turns them into abstract concepts. Heldens creates all her work according to a self-devised algorithm by giving herself instructions based on a starting position and works towards the desired result. It is her way of getting a grasp on everything happening around us.
Wieteke Heldens has exhibited work at Kunst Museum Den Haag, The Hague; Royal Palace Amsterdam; Borzo Gallery, Amsterdam, among others.
