MATHIS COLLINS (FR)
Born 1986, live and works in the mediterranean.
Mathis Collins' work is a seasonal theatre on tour with the rural and urban arts traditions of the mediterranean regions. His actors are the influences that these art forms generate on people's lives, and his stage designs are the weeps and silences that march with daily tragedies.
During the summer in the cork forests where are celebrated bark harvests and during winter when ablutions are done in bars by barrel's taps ; Mathis is an anthropomorphic public stage, drunk and silent. A stage to project the vision of one's own tragi-comédie, caricature and pamphlet.
Looking at the influences that art has on agriculture, craft, religion and tourism ; Forests, bars libraries and public fountains are places favoured by the artist, to reveal unknown artistic practices, while harvesting, drinking and cleaning it's laundry.
Recently, the work of Mathis Collins was shown at the Chalet Society in L'atelier des testeurs (2013), at the Centre d'art Edouard Manet de Gennevilliers in Les référents (2013), at 1M3 in Lausanne in a solo show, BARK (2012) and at Palais de Tokyo in collaboration with Cyril Verde in DYNASTY (2010).
ALEXANDER MILLAR (GB)
Born in 1990, lives and works in Glasgow.
My work is an installation based practice that uses a variety of different elements, including video, photography and sculpture. I am interested in expressions of everyday monumentality and beauty, and in dislocating objects from their habitual context, I aim to expose some of the anxieties and desires that can underpin them. It is with a sense of humour and pathos that the work is most interrogative, while ideas around the theatre of the absurd and tableaux vivants are a continuing preoccupation of mine.
Frequently my aim is to re-animate an image through sculptural means, and in doing so, challenge its representative capabilities. What often results is a quite musical arrangement of both natural and designed forms.
Alex Millar (b.1990) is a Scottish artist that lives and works in Glasgow. He Graduated from Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art in 2012 and currently has a studio in the west end of the city.
CATARINA OLIVEIRA (PT)
Born in 1984, lives and works in Lisbonne
Through films, performances and texts my work experiments with story-telling and (re)telling histories. I’m fascinated with how stories and images have the power of exposing us to poetics while simultaneously confronting us with slices of life, depictions of a social or individual reality. My works assemble different impressions, memories, allegories and thoughts, in montages of lapses, repetitions and motif variations that give rise to cyclical poly-vocal narratives.
I’m particularly interested in how contemporary western society understands and relates to time and memory. I have been investigating through my work how certain authorities and entities strive to perpetuate certain myths and how historical and cultural narratives are generated. Different authorities have found in progressive and dialectical forms of narrative a way to assert their agendas and secure their hegemony. In order to assure these forms as conductors of their authority it is necessary that the categories and entities they encompass are perceived as stable and unified truths. My practise is populated with characters, locations, objects and memories that aren’t stable and fully crystallised entities, instead by fragmented ones or in flux. The narratives in my works rarely behave linearly, so that they can call attention to what the organisational and compositional models of story and history telling we have inherited might encompass.
Catarina de Oliveira get a Master at Piet Zwart Institute (Rotterdam, NL) en 2012; recently her work was shown at Parkour (Lisbonne, PT), Serralves Museum (Porto, PT), The Watermill Center (NY, US), Bonheur Theater (Rotterdam, NL), and at HEAD (Genève, CH), she get a Grant from Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian.
