Artist: Al Masson
"French/Danish artist Al Masson often includes performances in his work. He says 'it's an extension of the works and a challenge for the audience and for myself'. Using diverse medias open for possibilities and discard a limitation of one line of works. Within a given delimited space Al Masson tries to build an illusory enviroment or "space of doubt". These installations have the same common point; "trying to reconstruct a familiar place into a metaphorical aesthetic space. In that enclosed space one is usually invited to stay and reflect for a few minutes.""

Artist: J.J. McCracken
"J.J. McCracken builds immersive installations populated by living models focused on assigned tasks. Sometimes, repeating cycles of productive activity yield accumulation, and then things fall apart. Other times, consumption is incessant but unable to satisfy. McCracken’s experiential landscapes are manifestations of her research and her concern about resource equity."
