    Gardar Eide Einarsson

    Oslo, Norge / Works and lives in Tokyo, Japan, b. 1976
    Gardar Eide Einarsson works with the notion of sub cultures and how to access these environments. He addresses this subject matter through diverse media as installation’s, paintings, sculptures etc. The notion of subversion and the undermining of the establishment is present, yet without being an aspiration of the artist, this obviously points to the classical notion of the artist’s position in society. All his works relate to the anti institutional and to the interference of concepts of freedom and the structures and organizations in society. The artist makes apparent the communicative strategies of inclusion and exclusion dominant in the culture we live in and the parallel systems existing on the boarder of the wellknown society. With a view on the institutions of society, Einarsson explores how they are negotiated and how ways are found to escape them and work with different degrees of belonging and non-belonging.

  • Ulises Carrión

    Ulises Carrión

    San Andrés Tuxtla, México, b. 1941
    Ulises Carrión (1941-1989). Mexican conceptual artist settled in Amsterdam from the 1970’s to his death a decade later. His work went from fiction novels and short stories to the exploration of the structure of literature traditional forms through visual and sound mediums, such as paper sheets, books and audiocassettes. Carrión was not only an artist who created books, or a theorist of this new art form, he became an editor and a librarian of artist books, creating Other Books and So (OBAS, 1975-1979) where he started a second stage of his work. He later studied the structure of cultural forms of communication, such as correspondence, gossip, fictional star celebrities and plagiarism, using performance, conferences and media devices as postcards, magazines and video, as tools for exchanging ideas with other artists. Over the years, Carrión’s work has been reconsidered; in 2016, Reina Sofia Museum exhibited a retrospective of his archive Dear reader. Don’t read.

    Martin Soto Climent

    Mexico City, México, b. 1977
    Martin Soto Climent (b. 1977, Mexico City) lives and works in Mexico City. Sourcing materials and images mainly from metropolitan streets or urban suburbs, Martin Soto Climent creates photographs, sculptures and installations that in their humbleness look like ready-mades. Reminiscent of conceptual art strategies like appropriation or juxtapositions, his works are always the result of minimal gestures of re-contextualization and balance. Made by vintage clothes, urban leftovers or collaged photographs, they look like fragile assemblages exploring questions of temporality, desire, decay and marginality. His work is highly adept at drawing out the sexual or otherwise implicit qualities of images and objects using the most minimal means. Indeed, it is most often the case in Soto Climent’s sculptures that any of the objects he intervenes can be returned to their original state: a little purse can temporarily become a smiley mouth and return to its monetary functionality. The concept and gesture of the fold plays a crucial role in the artist’s practice. Together with curator Chris Sharp he founded the independent project space Lulu in Mexico City in 2013 and currently collaborates with blogs and independent initiatives from the international art scene, while preparing his master’s degree on photography at the Academia de San Carlos, UNAM.

  • Rebecca Morgan

    Rebecca Morgan

    Clearfield, PA, United States, b. 1984
    Rebecca Morgan is from central Pennsylvania, and her paintings, drawings, and ceramics emanate from stereotypes of rural Appalachia. Humorous, benevolent, and savage at turns, her characters touch on truths about poverty, addiction, and off-the-grid living, as well as idealizations of uncultured country life. Stylistically, Morgan embraces hyper-detailed naturalism, influenced by Dutch painters such as Memling, Brueghel, and Van Eyck, as well as absurd, repulsive caricature suggestive of underground cartoonists like R. Crumb. As an on-and-off-again New Yorker, she represents the ultimate insider/outsider point-of view, embracing and critically distancing herself from her origins. Morgan’s face jugs revive a craft tradition common in the American South and Appalachia of vessels used by slaves to ward off the devil and later for scaring children away from moonshine. The individual portrait is replaced by the jug’s typecasting, and the contemporary is subsumed in the folkloric. Modern woes of methadone addiction, unemployment, and abandonment by society, collapse into a centuries-old societal disgust at country folk. Rebecca Morgan received a BA from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and her MFA from Pratt Institute, NY. Press for her work includes Time Out New York, ARTnews, Whitehot Magazine, Beautiful Decay, Artslant, Juxtapoz Magazine, The Huffington Post, and Berlin’s Lodown Magazine, among others. She is the recipient of a residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, The Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts Residency, a Vermont Studio Center full fellowship, and the George Rickey Residency at Yaddo. Exhibitions include Invisible Exports, NY, Elga Wimmer Gallery, NY, Arts KC, MO, Booth Gallery, NY, Gasser Grunert Gallery, NY, Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, and Spring/Break, New York, NY, among others. Her work is currently on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery as part of “Juxtapoz X Superflat”, and traveling exhibition curated by Evan Pricco and Takashi Murakami.
