FEATURED ARTISTS

MONIRA AL QADIRI

Monira Al Qadiri (b. 1983) is a Kuwaiti visual artist born in Senegal and educated in Japan. Spanning sculpture, installation, film, and performance, Al Qadiri’s multifaceted practice is based on research into the cultural histories of the Gulf region. Her interpretation of the Gulf’s so-called “petro-culture” is manifested through speculative scenarios that take inspiration from science fiction, autobiography, traditional practices, and pop culture, resulting in uncanny and covertly subversive works that destabilize mythologies of statecraft and modernization as well as traditional notions of gender. Tracing the delicate ecologies threate...

ARMIN BOEHM

Armin Boehm (b. 1972 in Aachen, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. His artistic journey began at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he studied under the mentorship of Konrad Klapheck and Jörg Immendorff from 1995 to 2001. During his time there, he was awarded grants from both the Staatlichen Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes. In 2001, he furthered his artistic exploration at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.

ANDY DENZLER

Andy Denzler (b. 1965 in Zurich, Switzerland) is a contemporary artist renowned for his unique blend of abstraction and realism. His works often explore the interplay between motion and stillness, employing a distinctive technique that combines smooth, blurred brushstrokes with more defined, static elements. This creates a sense of temporality and movement within his paintings, drawing viewers into a moment suspended in time. Denzler’s art often reflects themes of memory, perception, and the human condition, bridging the gap between the real and the imagined.

Denzler has exhibited his works in numerous prestigious galleries and museum...

SVEN DRÜHL

Sven Drühl (b. 1968 in Nassau, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. He studied Fine Arts and mathematics at the University of Essen and completed a doctorate in art science at the Goethe University in Frankfurt.

By drawing on the artistic achievements of modernism and postmodernism, Drühl sees the opportunity to develop a new style, a new "metamodern" visual language. In his mostly serial paintings and sculptures, he always works conceptually, creating something innovative by reconstructing and evaluating what already exists. In doing so, he addresses a variety of topics, such as the transfer of cultural and media values, originality,...

JOHANNA DUMET

Johanna Dumet (b. 1991 in Guéret, France) graduated in Fashion Design from La Calade, Marseille, France in 2011. Before starting her fashion design studies, she studied Applied Arts at the Baccalauréat (STI) in La Souterraine, France.

Dumet paints with oil on canvas; she also uses other techniques such as gouache-painted paper glued to the canvas. She is known for painting impulsively, with a strong sense of flow, and without constraint. The result is a sublime, captivating use of colour and abstract form that continually interplays with figuration. Rather than focusing purely on detail, Dumet creates a minimalist representation of wh...

ZHIVAGO DUNCAN

Zhivago Michael Duncan (b. 1980 in Indiana, USA) lives and works in Los Angeles and Mexico City. Duncan’s multi-disciplinary practices runs the gamut from installation to paintings to ceramics and works on paper, all of which explore the underlying relationships between human consciousness and constructed notions of the real. His work weaves elements of ancient creation myths with modern treatises on subjects as diverse as physics, metaphysics, astronomy, artificial intelligence, and contemporary philosophy. The result is Duncan’s own distinctive mythological cosmos, expressed through a hieroglyphic language and iconography that symbolize ...

AMIR FATTAL

Amir Fattal (b.1978 Tel Aviv, Israel) is an artist and curator based in Berlin. Fattal’s practice is one of reflection grounded in the history of aesthetics and cultural references. Working in new technologies such as AI, 3D printing and digital animation, his work highlights their effects on creativity.

In his new series of Post Artificial Painting, Fattal reimagines classic art world scenarios for the 21st century. Amir Fattal starts each work with a series of prompts that coax forth a fictional portrait from the depths of AI’s ‘collective unconscious’. Then, employ traditional oil painting techniques on canvas to bring these AI-gen...

RACHEL GARRARD

Rachel Garrad (b. 1984) lives and works in New York and Mexico. She earned a BFA and MFA at Central Saint Martins, London.

Garrard’s multifaceted practice integrates painting, sculpture, sound, installation, and video, articulating a view of reality in which the border between the physical and ephemeral is porous and ever-shifting. Her paintings are composed of natural substances, such as quartz, ash, or rock powder pigment, that she has personally collected, hand-ground, and applied to raw linen canvas through a process of fine layering translucent washes of color. The applied pigment becomes a physical register of place, a palimpses...

XENIA HAUSNER

Xenia Hausner (b. 1951 in Vienna, Austria) lives and works in Vienna and Berlin. She studied stage design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. From 1977 to 1992 she was a successful set designer for international theatre and opera productions. In 1992 Hausner began focusing exclusively on her painting practice. She is also a founding member of Women Without Borders.

Hausner‘s work has been shown in numerous museum solo and group exhibitions, such as at Albertina Modern, Vienna, Austria (2023); Galleri Würth, Hagan, Norway (2023); Art Contemporani, CC Andratx, Spain (2022); Franz Gertsc...

JEPPE HEIN

Jeppe Hein (b. 1974 in Copenhagen, Denmark) is a Danish artist based in Berlin. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark, and the Städel Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Jeppe Hein is widely known for his production of experiential and interactive artworks that can be positioned at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect. Unique in their formal simplicity and notable for their frequent use of humor, his works engage in a lively dialogue with the traditions of Minimalist sculpture and Conceptual art of the 1970s. Jeppe Hein’s works often feature...

ZSÓFIA KERESZTES

Zsófia Keresztes (b. 1985 in Budapest) lives and works in Budapest. She studied at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. Keresztes creates large sculptural works and installations out of a combination of materials that straddle identities both virtual and real. These are often finished in pastel hues of light blue, beige, coral, and pink, adding to their appropriation of actual and imagined bodies. The large scale of these works belies their playful, otherworldly levity, open and porous to the spaces and viewers that surround them, linking disparate forms into precarious chains full of associative potential and structural insubordination....

KRIS MARTIN

Kris Martin (b. 1972 in Kortrijk, Belgium) lives and works in Mullem, Belgium. His artistic work is characterized by an investigation into existential questions. His reflections on being materialized in works convey intense experiences with the passage of time, with life and death, spirituality, and religion. His installations, sculptures, photographs, videos, and drawings combine conceptual elements with a sensuous quality.

The artist frequently employs found objects that hold a particular fascination for him; to his mind, these objects trouvés are carriers of a number of different ideas as well as of their own history. Using minimal...

ARNE QUINZE

Arne Quinze (b. 1971 in Belgium) is a Belgian contemporary artist, painter and sculptor. His work involves everything from small drawings and paintings to medium-sized sculptures to massive installations. Quinze was born in Belgium in 1971 and currently lives and works in Sint-Martens-Latem, a town near the Belgian city of Ghent. His early career in the 1980s was as a graffiti artist. He always questioned the role of our cities and started his search for cities to become open-air museums. His work quickly evolved from Street Art to Public Art with recurring themes such as social interaction, urbanisation, and diversity.

ANSELM REYLE

Anselm Reyle (b. 1970 in Tübingen, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe. Since 2009 the artist has held a position as a professor of Painting/Drawing at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg.

Anselm Reyle’s best-known works include his foil and stripe paintings as well as his sculptures. The characteristic of his artistic work is the use of various found objects that have been removed from their original function, altered visually, and recontextualized. Remnants of consumer society, discarded materials, symbols of urbanity, and industrial change play a centra...

AYAKO ROKKAKU

Ayako Rokkaku (b. 1982 in Chiba, Japan) lives and works between Berlin, Porto, and Tokyo. Her artistic process involves an instinctive and performative approach, as she uses her bare hands to apply acrylic paint, translating the motion of her body onto the canvas. True to her distinctive technique, she moulds figures with the tips of her fingers, whether on canvas, through glass, or in bronze.

Rokkaku’s visual language seamlessly shifts between elusive abstract formations and figurative elements, drawing inspiration from the kawaii culture (Japanese for cute) and capturing the boundless imagination of a child. Rokkaku is known for he...

JOANA VASCONCELOS

Joana Vasconcelos (b. 1971) is a Portuguese visual artist with a career spanning nearly 30 years and a huge variety of media. Recognised for her monumental sculptures and immersive installations, she decontextualises everyday objects and updates the arts and crafts concept for the 21st century, establishing a dialogue between the private sphere and public space, popular heritage, and high culture. With humor and irony, she questions the status of women, consumer society, and collective identity.

International acclaim arrived in 2005 with The Bride at the first Venice Biennale curated by women, where she has returned three times to dat...

ERWIN WURM

Erwin Wurm (b. 1954 in Bruck an der Mur, Austria) lives and works in Vienna. His oeuvre comprises sculptures, photography, video, performance, and painting. His works often involve everyday objects such as cars, houses, clothing, luxury bags, and food products, with which he ironically comments on consumerism and capitalist mass production. Wurm gained widespread popularity in the 1990s with his “One Minute Sculptures”. Museum pedestals are displayed and left devoid of any work, so that the audience can take the place of the sculpture for one minute, according to the artist’s whimsical instructions. With this ironic yet radical gesture, Wu...

DAVID ZINK YI

David Zink Yi (b. 1973 in Lima, Peru) studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Munich, and at the Universität der Künste, Berlin.
