Born January 22, 1984, Baia Mare, Bogdan Rata works in Timisoara, Romania. He teaches at the West University of Timisoara, Faculty of Arts and Design, Department of Sculpture.

Posthumanism.

His new hybrid realism finds new genetic forms of human anatomy in search of a new posthumanism. Rata multiplies human parts (fingers, ears, etc.) and combines them into new life forms. Newborn babies seem to be the result of strange experiments with the human body in an aesthetic laboratory. Rata’s works forge a contextual shift in anatomical detail through his obsessive multiplication. The materials used, and the resulting industrial aspect, question the attack on individual personality in a climate of standardization of the commercial brand.

Unsuccessful blessing.

The concept of “hand-foot” and the symbol of “unfruitful blessing” reinforce the idea behind the work. Propelling it delicately into the realm of the grotesque. The torso also evokes a twist of reality, the socially provocative themes of sexual identity and the hermaphrodite. He uses new materials such as polystyrene, industrial paint, plaster, synthetic resin.

Mario Rodriguez “MAREO” is a multidisciplinary artist born in Mexico City in 1981, raised in Colombia and based in Barcelona.

His work explores the strength of topography and natural territory, conceived as a constantly moving energetic living mantle. Epidermal stratification forged by time, with an emerging telluric language, pressing, gravitating, revealing itself through the landscape.

“Matter is condensed light”.

Rodríguez seeks to cover different scales in his artistic approach. From the massiveness of mountains and rocks, through its process of settling and fragmentation to stone as the basic unit. Thus, He is interested in matter as a condensation of light and its process of transformation. Expanding energy over time, releasing weight to return to origin.

Exhibitions & publications.

He has had 16 individual exhibitions and participated in various art fairs and projects in North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.

​Several publications of his work have been made, among which 3 books stand out: “Expansion” published by the Italian gallery E3 contemporanea and Vanillaedizioni in 2018, self-published book “Matter is condensed light” 2020 and VC 03 presenting the exhibition “Portals” by Valletta Contemporary, Malta 2022.

Lawrence Argent’s art encompasses a breadth of form, material, and site that push the viewer to confront their assumptions about environments and the art that exists within them. These interventions envelope a path of consciousness through which the physical promotes the non-physical. The sublime emerges as a vehicle traversing a slippery foundation in the gap between stimulus and response.

Sebastian Magnani is a Swiss-based photographer known for his intimate portraits that masterfully use light and color to create emotional scenes. His latest series “Daily Bat” skillfully captures the aura of cultural icon Batman and places it in the context of our normal everyday reality. The Batman figure becomes someone we can identify with, seeming to sympathize through a shared sense of isolation.

The thesis will be that of wanting to recognize a bit of architecture in Otto Zitko’s drawings and especially in his bedroom drawings. In a first part, he wishes to enter into the relationship between modernism and design and architecture. Then, secondly, retrace the inversion of this relationship between line and space in the work of Otto Zitko.

Paint a continuous line.

A line that Otto Zitko draws when he paints continues the line that the artist started long ago. With this line, he is “on the move”, like someone who follows nomadic principles. Like someone who literally traces a path in a labyrinthine network and follows it (respectively pursues and traces it). Like someone placing a two-dimensional lineament into existing spaces with expansive painting/drawing gestures, making them dynamic. Delimiting them and enriching them with an unsuspected depth that alludes to the temporal dimension.

Visual artist
Location: London (UK)

 

 

 

 

 

Tony Hornecker is an internationally renowned artist and scenographer. His installations have been staged at institutions such as the Royal College of Art. The Royal Opera House and the Architecture Foundation in London. Her work incorporates a wide variety of mediums, from print to sculpture. Architecture and performance. Her love of found materials and how to take them, and taking the viewer on magical journeys in her imagination have won her work a loyal following.

Installation artist.

In recent years he has started to develop his career as an installation artist. Drawing inspiration from his turbulent childhood and later adventures in London. He put on some very intense and honest shows in his home and studio in Hackney. The studio itself becomes an attraction in its own right, a unique exhibition of the bowels of his soul. Abandoned sets and heaps of bric-a-brac, all lovingly arranged and displayed.

The Pale Blue Door.

In 2009, he opened The Pale Blue Door, a cabaret and dining experience installation staged among the many nooks and crannies of his elaborate home. It was to be a smash hit and continues to occasionally entertain to this day. His love of travel, his admiration for gypsies and the art of creating anything out of anything, took The Pale Blue Door as far away as Buenos Aires. Santiago. Berlin. Valparaiso and even the Glastonbury Festival.
