Central to the artistic practice of Robin Vanbesien is an interest in the agencies of unstable resources, which he recognises in and researches through texts, readings, painting and photography. The works aim for a deliberate fusion of meaning and identity which opens the path for new intuitive and associative approaches. The titles of the works reflect the responsive activity that stand on the basis of this artistic process. In Walden Affairs, Robin vanbesien presents a new series of work under the title 'The Incapacity Not to Enter into Every Skin'.

Adam Avikainen presents his most recent project 'Ginger Glacier'. The presentation forms a dialogue with a parallel exhibition of the project at the Taipei Biennial 2012. Avikainen engages everything that meets his gaze. This literally takes the form of a dialogue with his so-called “fellow travelers”, be they humans, plants, thoughts, or creatures from fables and myths. From Adam Avikainen’s point of view, every entity can easily slip into different states of being: a thought becomes a living creature, an object becomes a wise story-teller. In this configuration, the artist himself is not so much a “creator” or “demiurge” of his world, but rather a part of it.
