Press release

Savaş Boyraz – the State we are in
Boyraz’s cinematic perspective, his specific narrative approach and his conceptual interest converge from differing directions within the framework of his photo- and video works, so enabling striking images of social inequality, the architecture of violence, and an understanding of material and psychological damage and its significance.

Chiu Chen-Hung – Phototaxis
Chiu Chen-Hung's works take the form of installations, videos and sculptures. His approach is similar to that of an archaeological excavation, enabling him to uncover traces and outlines of past times and spaces. Using his practice of abstracting and reinterpreting, Chiu re-shapes formerly existing objects and meanings to develop a method of restoring memory.

Hayden Fowler – Broken Romance
Hayden Fowler's artistic work depicts scenarios ranging from pristine futuristic interiors to post-apocalyptic or historical landscapes. Within these spaces, choreographies between plants, animals and ideas of the machine unfold, weaving mysticism, technology, architecture and life forms into strange new systems.

Pia Krajewski & Irina Ojovan – Come Close & Step Back
Undulating hair, endlessly meandering arms, vases and pitchers as protagonists of an enticing puzzle. Monochrome surfaces, tightly covering the underlying layers, provide information about the past, much like a palimpsest. With Come Close & Step Back, this year’s Winsor & Newton Fellows Pia Krajewski and Irina Ojovan will be presenting new works in a joint exhibition at Künstlerhaus Bethanien (curator: Jurriaan Benschop).

Krista Belle Stewart – Potato Gardens Band
Krista Belle Stewart's artistic practice is inseparably linked to her membership of the indigenous Syilx/ Okanagan Nation in British Columbia. She works with video, with the land belonging to her family, with performance, photography and sound. She uses archive materials to highlight the divide between personal and political narrative techniques in the telling of history, also applying the example of her own history and origins to question historical representation in the context of institutional discourse.
