About the artists:
Employing intricate re-photography and compositing techniques, Sarah Biagini's multi-layered films demonstrate the evolution of materials and images through many stages of transformation.
Adán De La Garza
Adán De La Garza's sound installation and performance works explore the territory between socially accepted auditory norms, the act of democratizing audio, and sonic warfare. De La Garza's work reflects on the growing practice of societies appropriating technologies from military tactics in everyday interactions with its citizens. He demonstrates how one can counteract the auditory invasion through small scale acts of repurposing everyday objects and take back control over their own sonic environments. Simultaneously simplistic and urgent, these calls to action suggest that individual political gestures can amass into a collective, stronger force.
Laura Shill is a maximalist artist who makes work that is a collision of collecting, costuming, performance, installation and photography. Using reclaimed textiles and laborious craftwork, and drawing upon early photographic practices and the hidden mother tintypes of the 19th Century, Shill reimagines the photographer's studio as a feminine, domestic, bodily space where subjects reveal and conceal themselves for the camera.
