Artist, art director, adventurer. Based in Toronto, in the great white north, Stephanie's art involves finding beauty in the grotesque, from installations made entirely of human teeth, to photographing abandoned buildings, to re-appropriating left-overs for time-based sculptures, and always with a dash of humour.
Martha Naranjo Sandoval is a New York-based filmmaker and visual artist from Mexico City. Her work focuses in the materiality of image; in the difference between how time is portrayed in moving and still image; and in how images gain significance culturally.
She holds a degree in Film a Television from Centro de Diseño, Cine y Televisión (Mexico City) and an MFA from the International Center of Photography and Bard College. Her short films Vacío para Compartir, A Propósito del Dr. Alfonso Sandoval, and Autorretrato con Extraños y Uno Que Otro Conocido were shown in festivals worldwide. She was part of the .357 Estudio y Espacio Creativo photography residency in 2012 and in 2014 she won the Conacyt-FONCA scholarship for studies abroad (awarded by the Mexican Government) . In 2016 she edited the book After the Fact, which included pieces by Martha Wilson, Katherine Hubbard, and Nona Faustine, among others. Along with artist-curator Groana Melendez, she organizes platforms to showcase artists and promote critical conversations, including a series of interviews for the Camera Club of New York and the event Mexican Tertulia in conjunction with the festival Celebrate Mexico Now.
