Helene Nymann

 

Visual artist with a MFA in Fine Art from Malmø Art Academy, Sweden, and a BFA from Goldsmiths College and Central Saint Martins, University of London, England.

The artistic practice of Helene Nymann challenges the borderline between the organic and the mechanical and the effect on the conscious or the subconscious state of mind.

Nymann demonstrates the irrational, symbolic and psychoanalytical aspect of people or places undergoing transformative acts and/or radical change.

Helene Nymann has exhibited in Copenhagen, London, Stockholm, Malmø, New York, Cairo and Athens and is always in search of new ways to challenge and expand the medium of the moving image, so as to give way for a state of introspection within the viewer.

 

Victor Ash

 

Copenhagen-based visual artist, originally from Paris, France.

Ash started as a street artist, and was first invited to participate at "Les peintres de la ville" at the Galerie du Jour by designer Agnes B. in 1989.

Ash’s newest pieces are aesthetically very different from the graffiti he was painting in the 80s, and are a departure from the traditional graffiti styles of New York. Ash often uses the themes of contrast between the urban environments and nature and young people's quest for identity in subcultures.
