Studio #212

Artist

Yasmina Haddad

Yasmina Haddad’s artistic practice is based on photography and sometimes extends to different media such as sculpture, sound and set design. Recent works focus on how different cultural expressions are inevitably connected and how this reciprocal impact manifests through esthetics. The subjects shown often derive from the fields of fashion and theatre, and are portrayed in stage-like situations. Somewhat artificial and glossy, isolated from their usual settings, they depict socio-cultural processes and recall the malaise of postmodern sensitivities.

Yasmina Haddad has exhibited work at Beirut Art Center; Liu Haisu Museum, Shanghai; and Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna, among others.

Artist

Helene Nymann

Helene Nymann’s practice addresses the concept of embodied knowledge and the ways in which associative images stimulate memory. Applying mnemonic devices and memory-systems to image-making, Nymann constructs performative environments in which the moving image, sound and sculpture make way for transformative arrays of consciousness, deepening the understanding of the fundamental aspects by which we process information, store knowledge and create memories for more sustainable futures.

Helene Nymann has exhibited work at The New Museum, New York; Fridman Gallery, New York; and Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark, among others.
