Bel Barcellos Born 1966, lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

„Because (her work) gives us the impression of wanting to somehow connect parts of what is “real” and of what is “ideal” that inhabits us, causing a reflection about what we see and imagine, or even dream... Here, I believe to see a hyphen between body and soul.“ Sonia Salcedo del Castillo

Maximilian Brockstedt Born 1975, lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany

„And

Hamurabi said:“This child has a moving trustfulness. It is beautiful to see. But I am started to be disgusted by all of this.“ And he pointed to the jar. „To awaken such trust in a person is dreadful, and....“

Anja Ciupka Born 1975, lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany

„Without

a question: with Anja Ciupka we see everything at once. The artist achieves this by leading the viewer into the no man‘s land that exists between every possibility. Here, everyone is on one’s own. Therefore, in this space there are no true or false stories and a wide view in all directions is given.“ Barbara J. Scheuermann

Gerhard Mayer Born 1962, lives and works in Nürnberg, Germany „Rules for Wall Drawings All of the template drawings were made following these rules: 1.Each drawing must be made with only one size of ellipse. 2.The ellipses must always be positioned hotizontally. 3.The elipses cannot cross the edge of the sheet. 4.Complete ellipses are not permitted. 5.Three ore more lines must be drawn each time the ellipse template is positioned. 6.None of the lines should touch another; each must have a little distance from the next, even if it is tiny. 7.Dots are not permitted, just lines..“

Gerhard Mayer #1, 2003 Vinyl 90 x 120 cm


Alister Mackie Born 1970, lives and works in London, UK

„You‘d hope it filters to people on the street, otherwise there‘s no point. You hope it‘s not just some insider‘s secret.“

Alister Mackie Untitled, 2005 part of SHOWstudio.com‘s Moving Fashion series 0:34 min.


Akbar Padamsee Born 1938, lives and works in Mumbai, India

„I

begin in the presence of a „void“; a white sheet of paper and a mind devoid of thoughts. The brush is plunged into a container of water, when the excess water flows out, only the tip of the brush is dipped into the bottle of ink. This is the ancient Chinese method of loading the brush. Water is „Shakti“, and ink is the male counterpoint; the stroke of the brush is the union of the two.“

Akbar Padamsee Untitled, 2007 Solvent pencil on paper, 38 x 28 cm


Sam Salisbury Born 1977, lives and works in New York

„I never intended to be a self-portrait guy (I remove my glasses for these so I won‘t recognize myself too much). I wanted to draw/paint portraits that involved a degree of mutilation and required the sitter to look stern, confused, absorbed, underwhelmed, bothered, etc. and had never felt comfortable asking someone else to ‚sit‘ for this sort of thing. I see these portraits as me exercising contradictions of realism, time, space, value. Where a human face can break apart and reappear, duplicate, become another object altogether, and seem static.“

Sam Salisbury Untitled, 2009 Graphite on paper, 33 x 25,4 cm


Fumie Sasabuchi Born 1975, lives and works in Munich, Germany

„Here, the ballpoint pen is used as an imaginary scalpel, with which she dedicates herself to the bearers of valuable clothes, to open – as an anatomist or taxidermist – their flawless surfaces and carefully lay open what lies beneath it. The result are hybrid body images, in which the meticulously staged aesthetic of the advertisement merges with the clinical naturalism of anatomic studies – drawings, that certainly would not have appeared in the glamorous fashion magazines Fumie Sasabuchi uses as base.“ Bernhart Schwenk

Kate Street Born 1979, lives and works in London, UK

„I am drawn to phrases or words that speak of desire, attainment, consumption and loss. I interlace the deathly with the romantic in an attempt to create new hybrid forms that recall anatomical studies with strange botanical forms. My imagery is collaged together from medical/anatomical collections, renaissance etchings, botanical studies and own photography. This Frankenstein approach to materials and imagery stems from my interest in the human relationship with nature and our need to idealise it and appropriate it into a motif form. Many of my works have characteristics reminiscent of Baroque or Gothic styles, and are perhaps theatrical absurd, but it this absurdity that acknowledges the emptiness that accompanies desire and longing.“
