  • 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.

  • Joanna Piotrowska

    Joanna Piotrowska

    Varsóvia, Polónia, b. 1983

    Joanna Piotrowska (Warsaw, Poland, 1983) lives and works in London. She mainly works with photography, but also film and performance. Joanna Piotrowska’s practice is characterized by the creation of very tense images that live in a dimension in- between the everyday situation and a strongly posed shooting. Each of the series of works is characterized by a conceptual base that informs the project and that dictated the process of shooting. The photographs often involve people that the artist know and that might have a certain relation between them, as it happens with the project FROWST, where the artist shot relatives reenacting as adults some situations lived as kids, and mixing to these posed a series of yoga practices that supposedly help the relationships in the family. The use of poses that belong to different manuals, from yoga to self defense, play a very important role in the artist’s practice, that deals with ties, boundaries, relationships, bodies and constrictions.

    Recent exibitions include: ‘Give Me Yesterday’, Fondazione Prada – Osservatorio, Milan (2016); ‘Frantic’, Madragoa, Lisbon (2016); ‘Jerwood/ Photoworks Awards 2015’, Impressions Gallery, Bradford and Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool (2016); ‘FROWST, Krakow Photomonth Festival 2015’,The Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum, Krakow (2015); ‘s.w.a.l.k’, Project Space, Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art, Sunderland (2014); ‘What love has to do with it’,Project Space, Hayward Gallery, London (2014). She recentrly got awarded the REDA Prize during Artissima 2016, and invited by Instituto Inclusartiz for a residency in Spring 2017 in Rio de Janeiro.
