    Adrien Missika

    Berlín, Alemania, b. 1981
    Adrien Missika (1981, Paris) lives and works between Berlin and Mexico City. Through a wide array of mediums, which range from photography and video, to sculpture and installations, Adrien Missika records various places around the world. Like an anachronic traveling painter, Missika blurs the line between documentation and fiction. He defies and plays with the populist imagery rooted in our collective memory and, with a humoristic turn, opens up new readings. His experimental approach to photography and video, maybe his most recurring mediums, results in the nomadic documentation of non-places, unstable landscapes, ruins or biotopes that evoke a strange futuristic nostalgia. Even the very passing of time becomes a formal technique, used by the artist to expand perception. Through his installations and sculptures, Missika evokes in the spectator visualizations and atmospheres that with their narratives, invert clichés and hierarchies of representations: this is the case of Ciudad Jardin, 2015 – a project developed for Hors les Murs during FIAC 2015 – where he installed a vertical garden displaying bad weeds only, plants that generally are destined to be eradicated of any terrain.

  • Mika Rottenberg

    Mika Rottenberg

    Buenos Aires, Ville Autonome de Buenos Aires, Argentine, b. 1976
    Exploring the seduction, magic, and desperation of our hyper-capitalist, globally-connected reality, Mika Rottenberg’s elaborate visual narratives draw on cinematic and sculptural traditions to forge a new language, one that uses cause and effect structures to explore labor and globalization, economy and production of value, and how our own affective relationships are increasingly monetized. Through film, architectural installation, and sculpture, her work illuminates an interconnectedness between seemingly unrelated economies; collapsing geographies and narratives, Rottenberg weaves documentary elements with fiction into complex allegories for human conditions and global systems. Mika Rottenberg lives and works in New York after being raised in Israël. She graduated in 1998 from Hamidrasha, Bait Berl College of Arts, Israël, in 2000 from the School of Visual Arts, NY and in 2004 from Columbia University, NY. She recently had a solo show at Palais de Tokyo, Paris. In 2015, her video NoNoseKnows was shown by Okwui Enwezor at the 2015 Venice Biennial.

  • Carolyn Salas

    Carolyn Salas

    New York, NY, United States, b. 1979
    Oscillating between abstraction and figuration between site-specific works and sculpture, Carolyn Salas (b. Hollywood, California) uses a wide array of materials including: plaster, cement, ceramics, found objects, collage, craft oriented assemblages, and fabric. With laborious craft and a handmade touch, the imperfections and human attributes of burdens, failures and achievements of our everyday are exposed. Salas is interested in the “in-between” stages; the tension that lies both within the physical space and the psychological space. The work speaks to interactions between human civilizations, hierarchical powers of societal success, relationships, and nature with an emotional resonance that takes the works beyond any one of these single issues and into a universal realm. Carolyn Salas received a BFA in sculpture from College of Santa Fe and a MFA from CUNY Hunter College. Museums exhibitions include: The Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY; The Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield, MA; Urbis City Center, Manchester, UK; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA. She has participated in the residency programs at Abrons Art Center, NY, AIR program, NY, NARS Foundation, NY, and the Fountainhead Residency, FL. Salas currently teaches sculpture at Yale University. Salas lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
