What Happened to Cypress? (2019), by Sogol Ahmadieh Kashani (Iran)

Artist and painter Sogol Ahmadieh Kashani focuses his work on human issues in different societies, through the lens of emotions such as loneliness or bewilderment. She specifically explores the impact of urban environments and populated spaces on the way different beings live, using a language that is at once abstract and inclusive.

The Valley of Thousand Smokes (2015), by Hugo De Almeida Pinho (Portugal)

Hugo de Almeida Pinho combines theoretical research with metaphorical statements, developing an artistic practice that takes into account the nature of images and their ability to alter reality and perception. Working primarily on specific cultural, historical and sociopolitical contexts through a variety of mediums, the artist's work aims to reflect the historical construction of how technology shapes our perception.

Monopoly (2018), by Carl-Oskar Linné (Sweden)

Carl-Oskar Linné's projects use places as their starting point. The visual artist and photographer collects texts, slogans, interviews, reports and statistics, which he pairs with visual elements. His works often take the form of sculptural signs. They often feature the themes of urban planning, property speculation and poverty.

Patch (2015), by Asya Marakulina (Russia)

Visual artist Asya Marakulina is continuing to develop her project Clouded Education, based on observations of the movement and shape of clouds, through photographs, sketches and texts. Providing visual information which may be perceived differently depending on the spectator's state of mind, she sees clouds as a universal educational material. The artist plans to make a book of the observations she gathers in Paris.

Flatland (2014), by Joubeen Mireskandari (Iran)

Joubeen Mireskandari photographs subjects in his studio, while simultaneously capturing their images in the city to reveal portraits with multiple faces. The portrait photography in his studio becomes a Freudian mirror where the attitudes and mental states of his subjects are revealed, while the lens of his camera recounts their social and cultural backgrounds.

Killer Pool (2019), by Anna Rotaenko (Russia)

Through an artistic practice which combines video art, cinema and musical composition, Anna Rotaenko is working on a graphic series entitled “Where is the magic”, which dissects post-capitalist relations with art, particularly through the recording of conversations systematically constructed using statistical diagrams. An ironic video, Killer Pool features utopian advertisements from an idyllic island, where the viewer can fully relax.

Cosmos (2019), by Cecilia Szalkowicz (Argentina)

Cosmos presents an abstract story built from a series of objects. Functioning like a slide show, the installation - which takes its title from Witold Gombrowicz's 1965 book - explores how we construct our senses.
