Pan Daijing works with sound, performance, installation, choreography and film. Her practice is situated at the intersection of visual art and music. Influenced by improvisation and narrative elements, her works often have a performative starting point, though they move far beyond this in terms of their impact. They evince the artist’s intensely psychological sense of space.

Dan Lie’s art explores questions about ecology and non-human life forms. Lie’s multi-sensory, evocative sculptural installations create atmospheres that are found nowhere else. The ephemeral materials used in the works of the trans/non-binary artist progressively alter the space, time and dynamics of any exhibition.

Hanne Lippard uses her voice as her primary artistic medium. Her sound sculptures surround visitors, creating minimalist but immersive encounters. However, the calm impression her work gives does not belie the underlying voice that resolutely addresses political concerns.

Filmmaker James Richards combines experimental techniques with a sense of spatial arrangement. He negotiates questions of history and memory, of archives and conservation. His detailed works reveal a choreographic understanding of space, and of how people move through it.
