As a painter, I’ve worked in many different genres but I always look for some form of ‘revelation’ in the process. I’ve always juxtaposed between abstraction, figuration or some combination of the two. Regardless, I experiment with ‘Painting’ on a daily basis and and each passage of paint bares some form of ‘feeling’ for my state of being at that time. In short, I’m more concerned with the poetry of lived experience and the moment of action that can relate to it physically into material, image and object than with narrative, entertainment and design. –William Cilento
César Cuspoca is a Colombian artist, based in France since 2012. His artistic practice principally nourishes questions of perception, the duality between appearance and disappearance, and materialism and immaterialism. It is more concretely the idea of experience which takes a central role in his approach and which allows him to structure his creative process.
Tammie is a third generation photographer based in Sydney, Australia. Having grown up watching her parents photographing weddings and glamour portraits in their home studio, she grew an affinity to capturing moments at a young age, practicing with any camera she could get her hands on. Seeking to invite her viewers into a story that brings a sense of warmth and joy, Tammie is inspired by creating aspirational and idyllic images that move the hearts of people. Her work is often described as timeless and organic; with an aesthetic characterized by soft light and clean lines.
After attending the Liceo Artistico and the graphic design degree at European Design Institute in Milan, I began my profession working on printing, publishing, web and interaction design.

In the second part of 2016, I was in China for two artist residencies where I made extensive reports on the city of Wuhan, on the development of the cities of Inner Mongolia and the slow disappearing of some urban villages in Shenzhen and Shanghai.

As a child, Victorine dreamed of becoming a writer. Today she understands that it is thanks to her camera that she can tell stories. Photography allows her to highlight the reality of people on the margins of society but also to enter into intimacy with the people she meets. It’s above all the encounter with the other that nourishes her work. After training in international relations and humanitarian action, Victorine devoted herself to photography. She develops a documentary approach to photography and deals with societal and environmental issues.
