The One and The Other 2014

MARTA OSOWSKA PERSSON

The One and  The Other 2014

I approach different gestures and tactile and haptic games. Through a merging of the banal and the forbidden I open up ways to see new perspectives on the depicted act and what is inherent to it. Simultaneously, my paintings are also a way of depicting a multilayered curiosity regarding the body and the flesh. It is an ongoing exploration of inherited human behaviours, embedded mechanisms and embodied expression.

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro is an Italian experimental animator and director based in Milan. His output includes music videos and fashion videos. In addition to collaborating with teams and video artists creating interactive video projections for exhibitions, museums and special events, he has participated in many festivals and competitions, and has received numerous international awards in recognition of his work.

Tristan Pigott‘s work is incredibly striking, provocative, and awkward. These oil paintings are blatant reflections of contemporary youth culture, revealing the careful narcissism of selfies and social media. The concept of portraiture is intertwined with the curated nature of the presentation of the self. Tristan is a British artist who takes traditional portraiture and turns it on its head, making calculated distortions from interesting perspectives to let personalities and personas shine through. The way he portrays his subjects, who are often his friends, is not necessarily flattering. (With no filter, so to speak.)

Anatomy of Melancholy' Album artwork for Jan Swerts Concept by Jan Swerts The album contains a serie songs driven by melancholy.. Each song is dedicated to one of Jan's heroes, who's work also has a tendency towards melancholy. The booklet contains a serie corresponding portraits.

Illustrator Dima Rebus was born in a small town in Russia in 1988 and graduated from art school in Moscow in 2011. He now works on a wide range of projects ranging from his personal artwork to illustrations for magazines and other publishing houses. I really enjoy the edgy, somewhat unsettling nature of his work, there’s a strange sort of tension in every piece that really makes it stand out. You can see much more over on Dima Rebus.
