Blase (b. 1980, France) lives and works in Paris. He calls himself a “hacker-painter”. Blase buys old paintings (often from the 19th century) at auction and from dealers and then manipulates the images to make them his own while addressing issues, fallacies, politics and contemporary cultural polemics.
Capper (b. 1987, England) lives and works in London. He is a sculptor and engineer who creates fully functional human-operated machines. His practice is performative and he draws inspiration from the Land Art movement of the 1970s. Capper also meticulously documents his machines with drawings and films.
Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre
Marchand (b. 1981, France) and Meffre (b. 1987, France) live and work in Paris. The photographic duo document ruins around the world with a formal and investigative approach. They draw inspiration from the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher.
Montoya (b. 1974, Spain) lives and works between Madrid and Brussels. She is a conceptual artist working in various mediums with a focus on sculpture and installation. Her work addresses temporality and nature. Montoya is inspired by natural forces.
Woods (b. 1971, US) lives and works in Mallorca, Spain. He draws inspiration from classical landscape painting but uses unusual techniques and materials (for example, pigment and polyurethane) on his canvases and works on paper which makes Woods' work undeniably contemporary and interpretative.
