Petra Feriancova’s work conceptualises her own emotional reactions to the processes of perception and memory and examines the conditions of their sharing. Feriancova works mostly with found pictures, texts and archives which she interprets and methodically interchanges. Her primary aim in the manipulation of a reference, pictorial or discursive, is to provide the spectator with an original affective reaction to it.
Petra Feriancova (born 1977 in Bratislava, Slovakia) currently lives and works in Bratislava. She studied at L’Accademia delle Belle Arti, Rome, Italy and Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Xenia Fink’s recent work consists of drawings layered in boxes resembling traditional dioramas of the 19th century. In addition, she creates installations and objects such as marquees, shower cubicles, and fabric wallpapers, with which she imbues inherent connotations of a product or artifact to juxtapose with her drawings. She draws and silkscreens prints with content ranging from strong narrative to more conceptual and ornamental material approaches.
Xenia Fink (born 1979 in Sao Paulo, Brazil) was raised in Brazil and Mexico before moving back to Germany to study Illustration at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg. Recent exhibitions include group shows at the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin; Galerie Schuster, Berlin and Miami; and solo shows at the Galerie Volkspark and Halle and Galerie Schuster, Berlin.
