Yoon-Young Hur (Ceramist)
Architect and a ceramist based in Seoul and New York. Site and history are the foundations of her work; she moves back and forth between the two cities and explores cultural heritage through materiality and form. Ceramic projects inspired by elements from the U.S. and South Korea have been exhibited in Still House, NYC and Francis Gallery, UK.
Malgorzata Bany (Designer)
In her practice, the reproducibility of the moulding technique and the uniqueness of the hand-carved form sit side by side. For the past half-decade she has experimented with cast, carved, and worked forms that consistently blur the boundaries between sculpture and design, combining utilitarian functionality with the principle that objects must stand on their own terms.
Tycjan Knut (Artist)
Knut works in painting and drawing. He mostly creates subtle abstractions, which resound with the echo of the geometric trend, but also expresses a desire to exceed that tradition, freed from the constraints of formula. Knut uses delicate tonal differences and subtle colours. His reductive images also have qualities of a multi-level composition, because they were established as a result of the rise and overlap of colours in time, in a way that resembles the organic world.
Angus Ogilvie (Artist)
Ogilvie’s sculptural works span a variety of different processes and materials. The overlapping point being an interest in architectural forms. Working as part of Bask collective Ogilvie has exhibited across Europe with permanent work installed in Edinburgh and Contemporary Art Fulmer. He has adopted a way of working that removes the idea of authorship from the work by constructing a set of geometric proportions and then generating variations within these parameters. Often presenting multiples in varying orientations he creates sculptures that are simultaneously a fragment and a singularity.
Duccio Maria Gambi (Interior Artist)
Interior artist based in Florence. In his studio and workshop he develops and realizes projects for his own collections and on commission. Every object is unique, series are numbered. His main research is based on concrete casting technics and language.
Lorenzo Brinati (Sculptor)
In his practice, the depth of Renaissance Florentine Craftsmanship expanded by the vision towards eastern cultures can be perceived. He developed the techniques for his paintings working for more than two decades as a conservator in the traditional workshops. With his pictorial works Lorenzo transforms the old master’s skills into a modern yet timeless language. As a sculptor his language derives from the attention toward the nature’s law and for the acceptance that man is at the center of universe just as observer.
Jiro Ando (Art Director/Designer)
Graduated from Tama Art University, majored in information design.
He started to work as a self employed designer after working for some design firms and specialised labels for SAKE, books, CI, VI, etc.
He started his lifework “Kekkai (=Photograph of the lined up plastic bottles outdoors)” in 2010.
Since 2016, he has held solo exhibitions regularly.
Esther Chang (Artist)
Her drawings and oil paintings often depict the spatial-psychological deconstruction and fragmentation of the figure and the grotesque. With a strong focus on craftsmanship, her works take inspiration from Old Masters, yet they challenge the traditional aesthetics of portraiture. Her interest lies in the idea of the uncanny and the dissonance created when the familiar is fractured and distorted. They explore subtle shifts in value and color, the play between the diaphanous and architectonic, and the linear and ethereal qualities in form. Her evocative works create a crackled tension of unknown space and internal dialect on the canvas, blurring the distinction between fiction and quotation.
