Irena Knezevic

Theo Michael

Theo Michael Work from Scholars in Space (and Smoke from the edge of the Known). “Michael works with the idea of time like a builder and destroyer of space: while in the present we erect thoughtful monuments for posterity, the future condemns them to destruction and the void. His work, seemingly playful, uses pieces of […]

Robert Seidel

Robert Seidel Work from folds “The work folds for the Lindenau Museum (Altenburg, Germany) may be understood as a rapprochement with the history of the museum’s collection of plaster casts.

The room units form independent cells, they can be covered by tissues during the day; they provide a quality connection to the Internet. The private or public […]

Haris Epaminoda

Haris Epaminoda Work from his oeuvre. “…deceptively intimate works of Epaminonda: collages, escoriating and beautiful. They collectively form a kind of liminal space through the imagery of a past – the mid 20th Century – yet they don’t address a period in time, perhaps so that it might be the past, again. They are composed […]
