A mature and conceptually strong body of work from Krasimira Butseva, a Bulgarian born, UK based visual artist working with archive and memory. She talks about her series Balkan Ours - a series offering discourse on past Bulgarian atrocities committed through their past communist regime.
Visual artist Andreea Andrei talks us through her archival polaroid work, capturing her close friends and strangers with an editorial flair and a strong narrative. Her polaroids capture ephemera and momentary nuances within a portrait, these qualities are mirrored well in the medium she's chosen to work with giving this work a strong conceptual backbone.
Sofia Velasquez, a Berlin based visual artist, talks about her photobook Fernbeziehungen. - an unapologetically subjective documentation of personal recollections in the form of short narratives. Her work reflects her ideas on memory, youth, space and existentialism.
Visual and street artist Shane O'Malley spoke to us about his work Duality. A series of geometric colour collages creating fragmented whole shapes. The series mimics the frailty and fragmentation of his own mind while trying to dealing with his own mental health issues. In the work overall O'Malley aims for empathy found in the distortion of the inner depictions of the shapes but the calmness in the geometric order to override that anxiety he's visually evoked from an audience.
French photographic artist Helene Antorini spoke to us about her recent work Hubris. A photographic body of work depicting the greed of men and it's influence on nature. Through the use of allegory and semiotics comes a sombre narrative on the Greek term Hubris - an excessive self pride or confidence; a term used in Greek tragedy to denote mans defiance of the Gods.
Russian born, German photographic artist Natalia Danner talks to us about her work on Environmental Urban Exercises and how the ongoing project seeks to externalise the subjective beauty found in urban environments. Instead of focusing on grand architectural giants Danner looks for isolated street corners which carry a subdued beauty in their design.
Italian visual, performance and photographic artist Lucilla Bellini talks to us about her series My Name is Lolita. A discursive photographic performance questioning the ideals of beauty within modern media and how those ideals define female representation.
Inspired by the art of Guy Bourdin and David Hockney David Rodriguez creates a colourful series influenced by pop art and surrealism. An electric blue pool in a disembodied geometric space and the people who can be found here. A photographic series heavy in concept and form.
Photographic artist Alison Resac creates cinematic imagery with a strong narrative centred around the female gaze. Her work is an unapologetic celebration of being female and her work stands as a statement on her own perspectives in sex and gender but also a very intimate reflection of herself. Her fashion based photographic work seeks to empower women and create a discursive on their role as protagonists in modern art.
Ria Bauwens, a photographer and visual artist, creates intuitive collage artwork where the emphasis is on fluid artistic expression. Her work aims to create a new narrative through the abstraction of found imagery - distorting the initial intent into her own artistic representation.
