Ann-Sofi Siden

leave a comment »

(Stockholm, 1962. Live and works in both Stockholm and New York).
Two words well describe the works of Ann-Sofi Sidén: intensity and existence. Intensity because her works attract the viewer, Existence is instead, a recurring theme in the videos and installations of the artist, who confronts the images of life and death.

Martin Dammann

(Friedrichshafen/Bodensee, 1965. Lives and works in Berlin).
The series on show “Soldier Studies” focuses on the soldiers of the Second World War, involved in bizarre cross-dressing situations, a way to depict stereotyped situations of respectable matrimonial life, a sort of projection of petty-bourgeois life into the context of daily life during war time.

(Eleonora Chiari, Roma, 1971; Sara Goldschmied, Arzignano (VI), 1975. They have been working together since 1997).
Their works are characterized by a surrealist matrix, halfway between reality and imagination. They emphasize paradoxical situations, associated with a sadly all-too-frequent reality, picking the most tragic and contradictory aspects of our everyday life.
