Angela Bulloch & Maria Zerres
Angela Bulloch (born 1966 in Rainy River, Ontario, Canada, lives and works in Berlin) is an artist working across many forms such as sculpture, installation'and sound. In her work, Bulloch adopts an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating references from a'wide array of sources, be it history, film or music. Bulloch's works span many forms, but they all manifest her interest in systems, patterns and rules, and the creative territory between mathematics and aesthetics. A common thread in her artistic practice is the manipulation of codes and a sense of control. Whether that code is music- or text-based, the artist plays with and orchestrates our perception and experience of art. She proposes that this experience can be “subliminally programmed” and her work stages that which is beyond our grasp. Bulloch is affiliated with the generation of the Young British Artists.

The paintings of Maria Zerres (born 1961 in Linden, Germany, lives and works in Traunreuth, Germany, and New York) explore the aesthetic languages of abstraction and figuration. In her work, Zerres is wary of realistic and familiar depictions. Instead, she conveys emotions through her paintings with the use of bold, gestural brushstrokes and colours. Her canvases play with the use of space by emphasising painted and over-painted areas that emerge out of improvisation and result in compositions that bridge abstract and figurative painting.
