The artist Shai Langen from The Netherlands shows the amazing videos “Chimera“, that is a project about a contestable future of the human body, in which the body is grown and cultivated, and “Imago Dei” where the model was covered with a layer of coloured wallpaper paste unto which different patterns of paint was applied.

Dorottya Spitzner from Hungary proposes the installation work “The beginner“, inspired by a transgender person who was born in male body but with a feminine soul. Her project portrays the period after the recognition and acceptance phase in a transgender person’s life. It is still liquid but it adapts so naturally to women’s existence than the liquid to the surrounding form.

The “transdisciplinary” artist Gary Setzer diplays a video art “Panderer (Seventeen Seconds)“, in which he directly addresses his audience while a counter displays the passing seconds. Using a self-reflexive format, Setzer humorously calls attention to the average amount of time viewers spend with an artwork in museums seventeen seconds. This artwork conforms to the unrealistic needs of the “average viewer” a logical but absurd move that effectively lampoons our impractical expectations of the art experience.

The spanish artist Marian Ramirez Paynter exhibited her works on canvas: “Reflections” and “Rowing boats“, selected on the theme of the event BODYSPACES | HUMANS+HYBRIDS.

The Finnish artist Toni Kitti exhibits his photo works “The Joker” and “Toni Ankh Amon“, taken with his mobile phone camera. The pictures are like selfies that the plastic objects would take of themselves smiling wide.

Eliott Paquet, selected artist from France, shows “A Solid State of Mind” a video composed of two different types of sequences: excerpts of wildlife documentaries found online as well as excerpts of a documentary video showing Eliott Paquet’s blood collection. This physical action looking to separate testifies of a human will to counter the physical and natural laws, to bend them; they bear witness of a broken link between the Man and Nature, a headlong rush.

The Italian artist Alessandro Risuleo presents his photos works “Hug“, “Ban” and “Live Canvas, 1“, passionated to visual communication systems, found in photography a means of artistic expression that allows him to freely express his creativity.

A silent travelogue driving document of the city of Ashgabat, Turkmenistan will be displayed with the video art “White City” by English artist David Donald.

Kira Kealy-Watz from Australia exhibits her great photo series “Pride” and “Acceptance“, where the body painted is immersed in nature.

Danial Ismail coming from Turkey shows “Instant Mihrab“, in which the exploration of how the connection between body and space can be visualized in real time, showing a projected interactive mihrab design which is responding to a person’s movement.

Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
