Michael Sailstorfer’s artistic position is to constantly question and expand the classical notion of sculpture. With his often elaborately produced works he puts the processes of daily life in unusual relationships towards each other. He incorporates light, sound and smell within his installations thereby generating images of poetic power. His installation of a hanging car tire rotating in vain and rubbing against the wall without being able to get away, became renowned in 2005. In doing so the tire abrades and spreads a typical pungent odor. He dedicated his first big solo exhibition 2012 in Berlin to the central theme of the forest. In the installation „Forst (forest)“ five upside down hanging trees which rotate slowly occupy the whole of the ten meter high exhibition space. In the same year Michael Sailstorfer was awarded the Vattenfall Contemporary 2012. (viaMonochromatic Axonometric)

Lynda Howitt's lifelong love for the ocean is reflected in her paintings. Her work radiates a warmth that is compelling, perhaps due to the universal qualities of her subject matter, but also because of her unique vision, in which the opposite elements of nature are successfully merged as to become a single entity. There is a sense of weightlessness and light that embodies her work. Artworks of softly modulating hues, lifting highlights and strokes suggesting clouds or waves breaking, the sea and sky are interwoven, barely distinguishable. She has less interest in depicting specifics of nature than in evoking a sense of emotion.
Aisha Zeijpveld (1983) obtained her degree at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Living in Amsterdam she works as freelancer for a variety of commercial magazines, while continuously pursuing her personal work. Zeijpveld’s focus on people their nakedness and vulnerability yet simultaneously their potency and pride characterizes her photography. She aims for the absurd, allowing her photographs to be posited on the interface of reality and dream-world, while always maintaining their functionality and clarity.
