Elisa "Pooper" Harkins is a Native American composer and artist originally hailing from Miami, Oklahoma. Her music, animation, paintings and paper mache sculptures investigate Native American stories, rituals, and spirituality through a the lens of someone raised on pop culture and computer games.
Jesper Aabille (from Denmark) works in a variety of artistic strategies: urban interventions, sculptures, drawings, and text-oriented pieces. The common thread is the focus on social life, whether it is creating solutions to mundane problems by making bridges to avoid stepping in a water pit or cooking a fried egg on self-destructive wooden kitchen sculptures.
The borderline between reality and fiction often take on the form of the absurd to the point where this line becomes unstable. A central concern of Aabille is a specific and insistent interpretation of the world, which, because of it’s limited and defined scope, will never be adequate in a complex modern reality. Thereby failure is an imminent symptom of the work right from the beginning, but it only shows its grim face when Aabille has exhausted other opportunities.
