“I live and work in Kinshasa – in the heart of the chaotic megalopolis of the Democratic Republic of Congo. I was born there in 1981. In my early childhood i lived in Kalemie – a city in the province of Katanga in the south East of the DRC. I returned to Kinshasa – to my birthplace, which is a phantom for me… I was a member of the collective of young Congolese artists. We tried to explore with passion and engagement free and innovating creations. The collective was constituted as a framework to exchanges the different experiences in our lifes, spirits and expressions, but also to fight for human rights and our freedom. All the attempts are articulated around a concept which is called – the librisme. This is a movement of young revolutionary thinking artists in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries of the African continent by being opposed to colonial and old school academic art.” – Vitshois Mwilambwe Bondo

Rocket Ship by Sislej Xhafa

Photobucket

Photobucket

Sislej Xhafa is a contemporary artist known for his inquiry into the social, economic and political realities as they interact with the protean variety of modern society. His investigations use a minimal ironic and subversive language, utilizing indifferently a wide range of media, from sculpture to drawing, from performance to photography. Xhafa’s artistic research occupies a wide variety of issues, ranging from questioning the legal status Kosovo with his “Clandestine Pavilion” at the Venice Biennale to reflecting on the concept of security and stability with work exhibited in New York. Based out of New York, Sislej’s work does not merely reflect reality. Through his art, Sislej questions it. (via TEDxPrishtina)

Anya Gallaccio (b. 1963, Scotland) attended Kingston Polytechnic and Goldsmiths College at the University of London. Gallaccio creates site-specific installations, often using organic materials as her medium. Past projects have included arranging a ton of oranges on a floor, placing a thirty-two ton block of ice in a boiler room, and painting a wall with chocolate. The nature of these materials results in natural processes of transformation and decay, often with unpredictable results. Gallaccio has exhibited extensively on an international level, including solo exhibitions at the Tate London (2003); Sculpture Center, New York (2006); Camden Art Centre, London (2008); and Eastshire Museum, Scotland (2010), among others. In 2003, Gallaccio was shortlisted for the prestigious Turner Prize. Gallaccio’s work is featured in numerous public and private collections, including the Tate Gallery, London; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; and South Gallery, London. The artist lives and works in San Diego, California.

” I like my sculptures to maps. Each one is a physical description of an emotional place. Through my work I seek to identify discreet body language that might betray a private thought or reveal a hidden emotion. I am most interested in raw moments of self-reflection, inner thought and questioning. Individually, the pieces depict a brief moment or landmark along the route. When viewed in a group, the sculptures tell more of the journey.” – Deborah Baldizar

Emily Cooper

Photobucket

Born in 1988 Buckinghamshire, England. Emily Cooper lives and works in the UK. Her paintings deal with energies and states of mind; placing painting at the summit of experience. Rooted within the terms of Romanticism, with its validation of strong emotion as an aesthetic source; they attempt to capture the Sublime experiences of untamed nature and its overpowering qualities on man. Moving from the process of capturing and representing the landscape the paintings focus on an exploration of extreme emotional states in relation to nature. The viewer is confronted with an external void, a sense of awe, experiencing a state of liminality and it is this experience that becomes the subject matter.
