Joani Tremblay investigates the perception of place through the relationship between landscape and its simulations and reproductions. Instead of painting from traditional observed landscapes, the artist assembles constructed ideas of a place from a variety of sources including advertisements, postcards, Instagram architecture influencers, social media, mass communications, and field researches. Tremblay assembles these images into digital collages to test hundreds of possibilities before applying paint.
Joani Tremblay has exhibited work at Harper’s Gallery, New York; Marie-Laure Fleisch Gallery, Brussels; and The Pit, Los Angeles, among others.joanitremblay.com

María Gabler creates site-specific installations that criticize the places into which they intervene, based on the observation of constructive and architectural characteristics of each individual location, as well as their historical and cultural context. Through her works she interrupts the inner codes and structures that determine the way we relate with spaces. The materials and techniques used by her are generally linked to the field of construction: lumber, OSB, iron, and expanded polystyrene, among others.
María Gabler has exhibited at Galería Gabriela Mistral; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo; and Sala de Arte CCU, all Santiago, Chile, among others.mariagabler.com
