Laurene Bois-Mariage is a visual artist originating from France, living and actively working across Estonia and Finland.
She first received art education in Fine Arts to later graduate as Master of Arts from l´Ecole Nationale Superieure de la Photographie in Arles. Developed since then through a variety of media, her work is attentive to collective practices of the image, keen on observing both contemporary and former contexts of production and circulation.
Starting where the image is omnipresent, she makes exclusive use of visuals gleaned on media. In regard to the present ever-growing, a hyper-accessible stream of images which we all are familiar with, which we all contribute to, she keeps on recycling and favour picture editing versus making or taking.
Today she is much concerned with investigating the boundaries between amateur, art and professional productions. Grounded in appropriation, her works playfully cite, borrow, sample, mix and blend from here and there. She regularly presents group and solo exhibitions, is the recipient of multiple distinctions and participates in various cultural events, internationally.
James Bryant is a multidisciplinary artist working in London. He uses new technologies, performance, photography, net art and site-specific installations to explore the entanglement of mechanical image-making, memory and perception; in particular, the behaviour of viewing images and how personal and collective narratives are created and sustained.
His recent exhibitions include Through the Looking Glass by Lumen at Ugly Duck, London and ArtHouses at Whitley Bay, UK.
Timothy Cape is a London based composer-performer from Donegal, Ireland. He creates musical performance pieces which feature instrumental and electronic sound, text, video and physical performance. He often uses as a starting point personal experiences, recordings or conversations, and set out to create unlikely relationships between elements both inside and outside the piece. His interest in the inherent musicality contained in the nuances of conversational speech has lead to pieces dealing with political issues such as advertising and the value of work, and other themes such as the ego of the artist and the anxiety of the performer.
Timothy is a member of Bastard Assignments – a group of composer-performers who produce experimental music and performance shows in unconventional spaces in London, as well as perform own work in various contexts. They are resident artists at Snape Maltings in Suffolk for 2017/18. The 2017/18 season is funded by Arts Council England and PRSF. Two BBC Radio 3 broadcasts of live performances in 2016/17.
Commissions include Spitalfields Music (PRSF) (2016) and Project Instrumental (Britten Pears Foundation) (2014).

Zander Porter is a US-American, Germany-based artist working in the space between liveness and onlineness, proposing new modes of social relation via complications of selfhood, communication, and (dis)embodiment. In performance and video forms, Zander negotiates attention, connectedness, affect, subjectivity, and participation through an approach to popular/internet culture and commodity detritus with a mixture of curiosity, reverence, and skepticism. Material develops out of personal, identity-(de)forming experiences from virtual and physical spaces of roleplay, including online reality TV competition games, MMOGs (massive multiplayer online games), Berghain, the nuclear family, and anonymous/online intimacies.
Zander works individually as well as part of XenoEntities Network (XEN), a platform for discussion and experimentation focusing on intersections of queer and gender studies with digital technologies.
