  6. “One beer job” (Pail Ales: Tribute), Liam Mullen, 2023, perpetually-chilled beer, Pingu Ice, galvanized metal pail, dimensions vary 

    “If I had to guess, I would say that’s about a one-beer-job,” the expression and valuation tacked to the task of the ‘quick fix.’ Both a unit of measure indicative of the time it takes to achieve a job, as well as a proximate fiat, or currency, for one’s labour, “one-beer-job” (pail ales), sees the installation of perpetually-chilled beers as a mode of amplifying publics’ awareness to the precarious, and inconsistently regulated, economies endemic to the arts.

  11. Monumental Threat, Julia-Anna Simonchuk, 2023, foam board, modeling clay, 153 x 46cm

    One of the concerns in my practice is the decommunisation of ideological monumental art of the Soviet period in Ukraine. The Palace of the Soviets - a utopian megalomaniac project that was never realised, is being deconstructed, altered and transformed into a Kalashnikov rifle (AK-47). This way I’m emphasising the formal likeness of the architectural structure with a weapon. Also, I’m reflecting on official art and architecture being an aggressive and harmful instrument of propaganda.

  12. OCCLUDE, Freddie Sanders (made in collaboration with Chaney Diao), 2023, screenshot of interactive virtual world

    Working primarily with video game engines, Freddie Sanders explores contemporary understandings of collective mythology, individual agency and speculative worldbuilding. Often recreating existing real-world locations virtually, his work questions the perceived boundaries between the physical and the digital, and of reality and fantasy.

  16. Dick high-heels, Ben Qi, 02/03/2022, clay, black gloss spray, 22cm x 13.7cm

    Here are some sculptures based on some gender considerations. This is one of my early works which tries to break the boundary between female and male. It is also a resistance to gender stereotypes and patriarchal society. I totally respect traditional binary identity, and I also stand with the concept that gender should not be assigned at birth. Nowadays, gender presents a variety of possibilities in discursive social practices, so in an open society, how comfortable can we be with this?

  17. Diffusing Linear Body, Mei To Man, 2022, installation, painting, dimensions variable

    Diffusing Linear Body spans across painting and other mediums. No longer in their original supple state, the threads are stretched into sharp straight lines presenting a clear threat and invasion of the site. The image is taken from the Japanese film Oh! The Nomugi Pass which depicts the tragic fate of female workers at the Nagano Textile Factory in the early 20th century when Japan was in the early stages of its capitalist development. In this classic scene, groups of female workers must trek through an icy mountain pass to access the long road to the silk factory, recreating the image with teams of workers progressing in lines that drift and float like spider silk on the wind.

  31. OK! Immigrant, Ziyi Wang, 2023, video installation, dimensions variable

    Ziyi Wang applies humour as method to tickle the existing systems, borders, and bureaucracy. Her works are mostly video installations, involving elements of documentary, comedy and ready-made props. This ongoing work OK! Immigrant is a video installation series, about a farce around losing and replacing the UK resident permit, which involves missing a flight, debating with aircrew and the ambassador's office, and how she self-directed a fake "smuggling" to come back to my temporary "home", recomposing an Asian female contemporary version of the Odyssey.

  44. A Heart's a Heavy Burden, Ruth Speer, 2023, oil on wood, 24 x 30 inches

    I work with human-animal hybrids a lot, and fantasy feels like it can itself be a two-headed beast, peering from one world into the other while sharing a single internal system. As Ursula le Guin wrote, “It is by such statements as, ”Once upon a time there was a dragon,” or ”In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit”--it is by such beautiful non-facts that we fantastic human beings may arrive, in our peculiar fashion, at the truth.”

  54. In Bloom, Eilen Itzel Mena, 2023, acrylic and oil on paper 47 cm x 38 cm 

    Flowers are a symbol I’ve painted in the past that I have a personal connection to. Flowers represent beauty, healing, growth, and a diversity of self and community in my practice. In Bloom is a work part of the series titled, Floral Arrangement, where I depict different emotional states of growth through colour relationships, different forms of mark making and the flower motif.
