①Robert Powell
Born 1985 in Edinburgh, based in Scotland.
Robert Powell is an artist, whose work combines drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, film and text. He is interested in encyclopedias and other devices that show all of human knowledge in one object; in national identity and myth-making. He has studied in Edinburgh, and has exhibited in Scotland and around the world.

②Mathilde Jensen
Born 1979 in Faaborg (Denmark), based in Copenhagen.
Mathilde Jensen is a Danish painter, educated at Central St. Martins, London, today living and working in Copenhagen. She had her official exhibition debut at Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition in 2006, The annual Art show for emerging Artists in Denmark. Mathilde Jensen works with transparent time and space in memory, in her thin layered musselin canvases. This year Mathilde received the Danish Henry Heerup Painting Prize.

③Brice Catherin
Born 1981 in Brussels (Belgium), based in France.
Brice Catherin is a musician. After his diploma of composition with Michael Jarrell in 2006, He willingly stepped away from the contemporary music institutions in order to develop very freely a few activities: multi-instrumental cellist, improviser, composer and art performer. These activities fed into each another, so that beyond his multidisciplinary shows and improvised concerts, Brice Catherin has never stopped composing and premiering written pieces. These pieces were all premiered in Switzerland (festival akouphène, Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne, Théâtre du Grütli, Théâtre de l?Usine, etc.) and played in both Switzerland and France (Centre Pompidou, Paris).
