Itziar Bilbao Urrutia is a visual artist, activist and pornographer based in London. Her practice is linked to its many sexual subcultures. Her interest in the disobedience of the Monstrous Feminine has led her to explore mediums unrelated to the art tradition, such as porn as a film genre. Since 2004, her projects have been based on an exploration of the international fetish scene as a space of identity and praxis, that lead her to establish her own fetish porn studio, The Urban Chick Supremacy Cell. Using digital adult content as a form of survival and of expression, she mixes the discourse of Femdom with the aesthetics and rhetoric of historical radical action and feminism, such as Valerie Solanas and the Baader-Meinhof group. – @itziarbilbaourrutia

Identity, imperfection, irritation, cultural anthropology, ontology. Memory. Behaviour. Fueled by travelogues, fragmented pieces of thought and shreds information, the work of Koenraad Claes is conceived in an extemporary, organic fashion. Observations, sketches and (found) footage are hoarded and form an open-ended archive that is consulted on a regular basis. Exercises in the pathetic, between shaman and charlatan. Print, paint, installation, video and performance are the strategies of choice. Koenraad Claes is part of two collectives which hibernate and reincarnate according to circumstances: Casablanca Collective, a reactionary self-imposing collective flirting with activism and spiritualism. Intermerz, an artist/research collective browsing trash aesthetics, urbanism and protocols. Intermerz publishes its observations in a variety of media… from object to essay and… – Intermerz.com ; Koenraadclaes.be

In 2018, he made projects for the Whitstable Biennale and Centre de la Gravure et de l’Image imprimée in Belgium.

Warren Garland (b. 1977) is a visual artist, printmaker, filmmaker, and curator born in Birmingham and based in London. His practice as a filmmaker is two-fold. He makes long form experimental documentaries that build conversations between historical references in British documentary and his personal background and lived experiences as well as short video art pieces consisting of found footage collected from the Internet then re-edited, cut out and collaged. In these short videos, he mostly works out of a self-constructed world called Baltia, which is a mythological island base somewhere in the Baltic Sea. This world allows the artist the freedom to manoeuvre and place himself in a purely fictitious world that parallels the real world of which he parodies, mimics and subverts through magical realist video and sound. – https://www.warrengarland.com

Marcia Beatriz Granero is a Brazilian artist, independent producer and graduate of Belas Artes de São Paulo. Her projects explore the creation of a character, Jaque Jolene, recorded in videos and photographs. Jaque is the centre of the work, a fictional autobiographical entity who from time to time inhabits Marcia Beatriz Granero’s body. The artist collaborates with her creation in performative actions as they visit historic buildings where cultural institutions are established. These performances result in videos, photographs and installations. In them, cinematic language is explored not in order to undermine the fallacies of cinematic constructions but as a device for investigation and presentation of their surroundings. The videos have been screened and exhibited at over fifty festivals, such as The Latino Video Art Festival of New York, Simultan Festival (Romania), Bideodromo Festival Internacional de Cine y Video Experimental (Spain), Oslo Screen International Video Art Festival (Norway), Fiva Festival Internacional de Videoarte (Argentina), International Video Festival Videomedeja (Serbia), Channels Video Art Festival (Australia), L’OEil d’Oodaaq (France), Miden Video Art Festival (Greece), Proyector Festival Internacional de Videoarte (Portugal and Italy). – https://www.marciabeatrizgranero.com/

Since the late 1990s, Marc Hulson’s work has focused on the development of a densely interwoven lexicon of imagery, organised around a principle of alternation between the spectral and the visceral. Informed by a longstanding engagement with experimental, speculative and supernatural fiction, his paintings and drawings chart a specifically pictorial and personal field of the weird. He also practices collaboratively in diverse fields (moving image, sound, installation, performance). His work has been exhibited at public, private and independent galleries in the U.K. and internationally including the exhibitions ‘Saturn’ at Transition 2, London (2019), ‘HOUSEKEEPER’ at Sagacity, Brussels (2018), ‘The Yellow Sleep’ at Kunstverein Heppenheim, Germany (2014) and the national touring exhibition ‘3:AM’ at the Bluecoat, Liverpool. – https://marchulson.com/

Esther Planas’ research focuses on self-instituting practices during hostile times/spaces, and the power of critique and of radical gestures for producing the utopian. She works with her project Escuela de Calor/School of Calidity to generate a series of ongoing situationist processes where ‘encounters happen’ generating ephemeral contingencies where alienation and otherness is explored. Her practice is strongly informed by her background in dance and theatre and takes form multidimensionally as installation, film, lectures, publishing, performance or sound interventions. She has shown internationally, including at MACRO Museo, Rome, Hong Kong-Shenzen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture, and the International Architectural Festival Barcelona. – https://www.estherplanas.com/

In his work, Remco Roes collects fragments and spaces that he happens to find on his path. His – inevitably incomplete – collection of objects and ‘observations’ is forced into temporary spatial order whenever it is exhibited or made into a work. This involves Remco being attentively present amidst the materials he works with. The resulting installations balance between speaking and remaining silent, between intention and coincidence, between purposeful work and the uselessness of residual space. – Intermerz.com ; Remcoroes.be
