LYNNE BREITFELLER

After the Fire: Water Damaged, Self-Portrait │ Photography, 2021

 —

Years ago, there was a fire above my studio. Water seeped through the ceiling damaging work. Some work was kept, and during the pandemic, I rediscovered these images. The images were changed. Happenstance and water on emulsion transformed their compositions that created new meanings.
- L. B.

MEGAN SINCLAIR
A Preservation of Character 10 │ Photography, 2022

I remove the defenses that both protect and suppress me and look inward at what is left. I recognize the changes in my character and remember vulnerability as something that once came easily. This is an exercise in honesty, and a longing for innocence.
- M. S.

GAN YI
Time Lags │ Video, 2022

Our Time Lags Away from the quantitative and futile absurdity of time. Away from the waiting and repetitive stillness in movements. Towards the awakening of the soul and authentic time. Towards heartless truths and hazy infinities.
- G. Y.

DARIA LAZO
With Her: The Curse of Menarche │ Photography, 2021

This project explores how contemporary visual arts can be used to deconstruct the stigma around the representation of the female body, predominantly through the act of menstruation. The portraits are captured in a dark setting to create a renaissance-like aesthetic, which challenges the sexualization of the nude female body.

ALEKSANDRA SAWA

Victory, A Kingdom for a Tree │ Photography, 2021

A woman wanders through bleak landscapes. Man has subdued the earth and defeated nature. She is the sole survivor, no animals, plants to be seen. Thrown back on herself she stages absurd scenes. What can be done? Is there a future? How to take a stand when all seems lost?
- A. S.

VALERIA DEGLI AGOSTINI
In-Finito │ Stop Motion Video, 2022
The filmic space-time is merged with that of the clay models, creating a multiform, ductile, eclectic dimension. The fragmented aspect of time is combined with the concept of "infinity" through a loop of creation and destruction of matter that recalls the continuous repetition of history. The open shape of the "unfinished" is an explicit quote from Michelangelo's "slave" sculpture. It refers to the constant search for perfection by mankind, trying to free itself from his earthly prison to get closer to God. The alternating scenes symbolically combine the city and the block of marble from which the trapped soul of the slave emerges. The progressive deformation and destruction of everything is an explicit denunciation of the repetition of the errors of history, of the continuous return of war.
- V. D. A.

Synthetic vs Organic │ Photography, 2022
The artwork is part of a series called Kunvivado - the word means coexistence in Esperanto. Nature vs Civilization is a false dichotomy. We´re all connected and should live in harmony and integrated. The photo depicts leaves showing through a red tarp.

Bloom II │ Mix Media, 2022
Flowers are an important subject in my works as it is a metaphor of life. Like people, each is unique and beautiful; and although their lifespan may be short, they can still bloom wonderfully.

LARS KEMNITZ
Thinking of Distant Shores │ Video, 2021

"Thinking of Distant Shores" is an experimental music video shot by me in February and June 2021 in Fuerteventura, Spain. I used an old clockwork camera and black-and-white reversal double 8 mm film stock. It gives the video a beautiful out-of-time feeling fitting the music perfectly.
