The installations, collages, wallpaintings and sculptures of Verena Klary (GE) stem from a continuous attempt to understand both the nature of life and the nature of material things. How do we orientate ourselves in the midst of the unsteadiness of the world? On what or whom we anchor us, how we find our way? Verena Klary is interested in the undefined areas and in-between spaces of feelings, realities and explanation. This stems from the conviction that raw and fundamental insight can be found there. If fragments of the various areas of life come together we could see in the smallest gestures, ideas and coincidences the connections and and how they comment, judge and reveal each other.

Iwan van ‘t Spijker's work often deals with the idea that things could be much simpler. At the same time it deals with the impossibility of things being simple. This is reflected in vibrant, colorful paintings and drawings. The visual language is deceivingly naive and on a closer look turns out to be ironic and lyrical.
Website Iwan van 't Spijker

The filmic works of Dan Walwin (UK) concern themselves with creating cinematic scenarios, while examining the construction of mood and tension in cinema, and establishing connections between the context and surroundings in which a work is shown and the work itself. Within the works there has been ongoing concentration into themes of future catastrophe, post-apocalyptic imagery and the cultural and physical perceptions of landscape. Characters that inhabit the locations in the videos are often locked into a position of futility or desperation- endlessly in retreat from an unnamed threat, or in pursuit of an unattainable and undisclosed objective.
