    • I work on the limits, the tensions and the fragilities of the contemporary society. It concerns me the point or the moment where elements, individuals or situations confront to each other and they have to deal what is the position to take to be in harmony, or emphasize the friction between them. It is in this point where fragility becomes a beautiful force to itself to create a new scope for the achievement. Inside these fissures I find the main ideas of my work. I take these frictions carefully and thought about them from distance, where the vulnerability is susceptible of being penetrated and transformed in powerful by the form of an artpiece. I concentrate on the material or the substance in its natural state; the reflex in the raw, still not treated or purified material, and I transmute it into a creative form. The main idea of my work is to show these concepts as strong qualities which transform the differences or resistances inside these relations into skills of growing in one and in the collective knowledge. For what I look essentially is to transform the invisible thing; the emotions, the thoughts, the feelings and the vibrations into symbols, objects, sounds and images or a composition of them.

    • I share the idea of an art that creates new reality instead of offering its conventional model. I want to provoke the birth of view that goes beyond the boundary of reality itself. Viewpoints which stress an order that exists "a priory" in nature and can be developed again and again… Aspect that makes the work to exist as a signal, giving the onlooker a chance to go deep into his/her life experience and mind. Universal signals to which the individual responds in a unique manner and creates his/her own reality.

    • I express myself through single-channel video, video installation, and video combined with art. These are empathetic tools that help me better reflect circumstances that are otherwise hard to assimilate or understand, sometimes due to our own ignorance about ourselves, given the little interest we have in introspection or, simply, due to the fear of knowing how we actually are in our most intimate beings. In my case my work has always centred on video, videointalations, photo, drawings, boxes and objects which for me reflect more easily those sensations or feelings which are dificult to assimilate or undenstand because of our own ignorance or lack of experience. My idea is to continue working on artistics projects with this philosophy in mind and make the public feel those rich, pure sensations and help them reflect on their own emotional situation. Love, but also fear, pleasure, anguish, happiness, anxiety and doubt, among other emotions, all make up part of my work. I hope in some way to de-dramatize the situations and eliminate their aggressive tone, so that the viewer doesn't feel them directly, but rather reflects and understands their meaning, the reason for their existence.

    • Art is a set of images, metaphors and symbols, that reflect the political, social, economic and cultural development of society at a given time and space. The artist, as an observer, collector and producer, transforms this information to build bridges of dialogue between the outside and its receptor, the public. The loss of sociocultural identity, interpersonal relationships and interaction with the ecosystem, are the motivation behind the work of this artist. Her concern for recovering individual and collective memory takes her to investigate the myths and traditions of various cultures and eras. It is through play, sensory language and physical memory and the creation of images and oniric spaces, how Ana gets close to her real objective: the audience.

    • I am interested in working with the structural elements of painting to create an image that extends beyond the limits of picture. I use the wall as a large canvas extending the limits of the painting outside the frame. The painting in this way makes the viewer see the wall as a part of it.

    • My procedure is somewhat philosophical, if this term can be used to mean the pursuit of knowledge, of getting to know oneself and the world. My videos refer to art history, to classic genres of landscape and still life, a sense of cyclical inevitability of life prevails. My videos since 2002 have consisted of short visual metaphors, brief reflections of thought which the image is the interpreter of. For some years the still life built in studio is linked to the ancient painting. This genre was used to better express the concept of Vanitas. So in my video still lifes the genre revive through the time factor and the movement which intensify this same concept expressing uncertainty, uneasiness due to precarity and continuing evolution of change conflicting the illusory aspiration to the status quo.

    • I believe that seeing comes before words, my purpose has always been to share the way I see. My main theme is in creating strong and dramatic abstract images that I call 'Menacing Abstractions" because of their dark and mysterious nature. I use a camera as an artistic medium and a tool for experimentation. Lately being inspired by my images, I began to paint in acrylics, which has led to a new way of experimentation with this medium. Rather than recreating my photographs on canvas, I aim to express their essence in order to capture their power. .

    • Experimental films by Geert Wachtelaer are mostly focused on forming and researching of layered inner sates, forces that may build up different tensions between the subjects. Visual identity given to the strong and deep interpretations of the performers creates a cohesion with the sound that is a very important part of it. Observing transition of states and forms, exploring the relationships of matter and the inner content, in his films, Geert Wachtelaer often refers to the human conciousness and its paths, showing a "life" outside of contexts familiar to us, also visually portraying the alienation and the dark, even disturbing, from a psychologically more difficult points of view. There is always a reaction represented by persons, making it realistic in relation for the viewer, which is only a part of the appearance, but the substance rather stays covert behind the streaming of movements and ambiences that offer, through an unusual way, the key of the hidden. (Daniela Ratkajec, visual artist Zagreb and member of Croatian Association of Artists (HDLU) Croatia).

    • I am a multidisciplinary artist, who believes the most important thing being an artist is to have freedom of thinking. When I work, I try to understand the way, how we, the humans, perceive the world. How we interact with our surrounding environment. Based on this, my last works have been realized on way, representing the idea on many layers, arranged in multiple levels; from the shallow to the deepest, and which can be understood in many different ways.

    • Rather than approaching self-portraiture from an autobiographical perspective, I push the boundaries of what I define as “self” and “other” by playing with ideas of identity, gender, archetype, emotion and the visual interpretations and possibilities that exist within them. I do not consider myself a photographer, but rather an artist and storyteller using the camera as a tool to create. I can more deeply explore my conceptual ideas by embracing the roles of both photographer and subject. I am continually drawn to concepts involving the subconscious, alienation, time, memory, transcendence and surrealism. Other sides of my work explore my love of paradox and the juxtaposition of light and dark, beauty and beast. Most of my photographs use experimental in-camera methods, mirror distortions, modified lenses and handmade attachments such as the stroboscope. I enjoy creating unique ways to express the intangible realms of emotions, thoughts, poetry, dreams and nightmares.

    • During his studies at Sculpture studio of Jozef Jankovič, Sergio attended several sculpture exhibitions and symposiums. After completing his Masters in Oporto and returning to Slovakia, he switched to painting, drawing and collage. He combines disparate elements inserting objects into paintings (e.g. chips in 'Senhorita Batata Frita') or cut out pictures from the packaging and promotional items symbolizing the consumption. The chocolate boy has become a typical feature of Bacao. In several paintings resonate the topic of commercial culture and its criticism, as the author himself has said - we are surrounded by a commercial world which makes us very vulnerable (eg 'Vulnerability'). However, Sergio comments this world rather than directly criticizing it. His pictures are rather witty allusions to bind to the object of desire which can be a simple chocolate. The blond boy with a sweet smile in his face has become the logo of his works which he can cut out ten copies for one collage. Multiplication is the mean for propagation of commercial items and Sergio shows it now ironically. His smiles are a caricature of the 'american' smile and joy and parodies the material sufficiency. Irony does not abandon him even in other pictures when 'One for all and all for one' shows a whole family with the same face sitting in front of the TV that shows the one same face and on the right side a plant grows the one same face, or when a beauty of the Ads is shown as 'Meat'. Some works are much more personal and arose because of events that happened in Sergio's life. '3o tomate, 3.vajce, 3rd ball' is a game with different denominations of the male testes in various languages (Slovak, Portuguese and English) but it was painted due to an unpleasant disease personally experienced. 'Amor (Love)' – this painting might explain the cause of his staying in Slovakia: a slightly ironic diptych representing two deformed figures surrounded by a very hearted cardiac image. In the painting 'Seven years in Slovakia', the Slovak flag appears sewn to the Portuguese in which Sérgio's silhouette shines through. It is a symbolic image representing the two homes of Sergio. The sculptural objects are a return to the beginnings but dominant in the Sergio's production became the funny and ironic collage-comments to things around him and a collection of personal records. The exhibited is also a kind of playing with forms and experiments where the Sculptor is sometimes acting foolish but always through very refreshing creations.

    • Massive self & media created images make our bodies incorporate symbolic violence. These images are silent but saturate us through time. Nowadays, when the body and old institutions are falling apart; the age of accumulation is becoming omnipresent due to a virtual self-revolution by subjects and users of new technologies and media. The boundaries of the body are being pushed in a way that reality seems blurred and incomprehensible. Daniel Castellanos is a multimedia artist. He works with spirituality: reading and showing messages coming afloat; not in the media used but in the perversion of the matter. The way he does it is by intuition, humor and spiritual approach to everyday life. Some of the media he uses are Drawing, Photography, NEON signs Video and Video Installation (as a way to incorporate the human condition in to media) and others.
