Whether in the form of sculpture, site-specific installations, tapestries, animation, or painting, White’s works subvert viewers’ expected relationship to familiar objects, processes, and spaces. White lives and works in Los Angeles having presented major projects at Skulptur Projekte Muenster, 2007; the 53rd Venice Biennale, 2009; The Whitney Biennial, 2010; The Henry Art Museum, 2016 and Saarland Museum, Germany, 2017.

She received her Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Hochschule für Bildende Kueste, Hamburg in 1997 and her Master in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in 1998. Tschäpe’s interdisciplinary practice spans painting, drawing, photography, video and sculpture. Incorporating elements of aquatic, plant, and human life, Tschäpe’s universe of sublime forms shift between representation, fantasy and abstraction.
Isabelle Cornaro
Isabelle Cornaro employs painting, sculpture, installation, and film in her quest to challenge the way viewers perceive art objects. Her multimedia works orchestrate careful juxtapositions that pay tribute to and reinvent traditional modes of representation. For instance, her 2009 installation Landscape with Poussin and eyewitnesses consisted of pedestals, floral vases, and oriental carpets arranged in a loose interpretation of a landscape by Nicholas Poussin. Emphasizing depth of field, larger objects are placed in the foreground and smaller ones in the background, in accordance with the traditional rules of perspective, at which Poussin excelled. “All the objects relate to the representation of nature and the construction of an image,” Cornaro explains. Other likeminded installations have referenced Chinese porcelain and the ornamental pottery of Bernard Palissy.

Burcak Bingol
Burçak Bingöl’s works explore notions of belonging, cultural heritage, identity, decoration and failure by blurring the boundaries between these seemingly distinctnotions. Through her labor- intensive process of tracing, copying, and re-forming, she adopts an analytical approach to new configurations. Her works are psychological landscapes that hover between abstraction and representation, rejection and preservation that both embrace and disregard Eastern and Western traditions. Working with various mediums such as ceramics, drawings, video, photography and installation, Bingöl’s works are constant re-working of materials and objects to converge to the repetitive act where fiction and failure merges.
Olga de Amaral
Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Olga de Amaral studied fabric art at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Amaral is a renowned artist whose evolving technique, incorporating fiber, paint, gesso and precious metals transforms two-dimensional textiles into sculptural works that seamlessly integrate art, craft, and design. In their engagement with materials and process her works become essentially unclassifiable and self-reflexively authentic. Amaral is an important figure in the development of post-war Latin American abstraction. Her creation of “off stretcher” works, using non-traditional materials, acquires greater historical resonance with each passing year. Amaral’s work is deeply driven by her exploration of Colombian culture and her own identity. Architecture, mathematics, landscape, and socio-cultural dichotomies in Colombia are woven together through the use of fiber. Understanding and being understood is an important part of her work. Through a complex system based on artisanal technique, she finds answers to inner questions. Her golden surfaces of light thus embody the secrets of her soul. Her use of gold, inspired by the interwoven histories of pre-Hispanic and Colonial art, gives her work a presence at once sensual and otherworldly. In his prologue essay to the book Olga de Amaral: El Manto de la Memoria (2000), Edward-Lucie-Smith comments on the transcendent qualities of her art: “A large part of Olga’s production has been concerned with gold, but there are in fact no equivalents for what she makes in Pre-Columbian archaeology. Nevertheless one feels that such objects ought in logic to exist —that she has supplied a lack.” Amaral founded and directed the textiles department at the Universidad de los Andes (University of the Andes) in Bogotá in 1965. She was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1973, and in 2005 was named “Artist Visionary” by the Museum of Art and Design in New York. In 2008, she was honorary Co-Chair for the benefit of the Multicultural Audience Development Initiative, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Amaral has exhibited in institutions worldwide and the full range of her work is represented in the collections of over forty museums including the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, Japan, San Francisco’s De Young Museum, the Museum Bellerive in Zürich, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Renwick Gallery of the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.
