Rae-Yen Song

 

Rae-Yen SongRae-Yen’s work explores self-mythologising as a survival tactic: using fantasy to create a personal cultural language informed by autobiography, family stories, relationships and shared memories. 

 

Song creates multidimensional, non-linear and layered narratives that explore the position of Other, using logics which resist mainstream Western tropes and conventions, to speak broadly and politically about race, gender, culture, identity and what it means to belong – or not.

Kathryn Ashill

 

Kathryn AshillLive performance, video and installation present my personal experiences of high culture and lived working class identity. This clash sits in the disjointed narratives within my work. I pursue the theatricality in the everyday whilst sharing fragments of autobiography, observations on people, history and site.

Cinzia Mutigli

 

Cinzia MutigliMy work has an autobiographical core. I use texts, performance, still and moving imagery to create work that links my own story to wider cultural histories. I want to understand and communicate my experience. I consider how domestic, social, political and popular cultural aspects of our environment interact to impact our persona, our emotions, our psychologies and our sense of place in the world.

 

Moving image is increasingly central to my practice. While previously film was a player in my performances, now the film is the performance.

Rebecca Gould

 

Rebecca GouldGould works primarily in installation, ranging from assemblage, video and textiles, dealing with concepts of labour, capital and daily rituals. The sense of history of the object, by uprooting it from the proper place in time, removes it from its origins; history evaporates and condenses into another – modifying the value of the object by a ritualistic methodology of time, place and memory.
