there ain´t no cowboy in my hair…
I sense a leak inside my phone now from all the lies I have told
I sense a spy up in the chimney from all the evidence I’ve burned
I sense a runner in the garden although my judgements known to fail
I know the leak is going to tell you there ain’t no puppy in your leash
I know the spy is going to tell you it’s not my flag up in the pole
I know the runner’s going to tell you there ain’t no cowboy in my hair…

is a fine artist based in Berlin. Her work is concerned with life cycles, birth, death and rebirth, focused on repetition, patterns, destruction, construction and resurrection, centered around polar opposites and their motion forces, like gender, gaze, perception and communication. Repeat. Look. Repeat. Watch closely. Repeat again.
is a medium. He creates installations and interventions based on the inspiration he gets from each specific site, mostly working with stop-motion video. This approach results in visual feedback loops enhancing the experience of everyone present in the given space at the given time.
is a sculptural installation artist from Melbourne, Australia. Her practice explores the precariousness of place and cultural identity in an increasingly globalised contemporary reality. She fabricates paper sculptures and cardboard environments that inhabit an ambiguously hybrid and fascinating space.
