Marta Fernandez Calvo was in Escorial, Madrid, Spain

Marta Fernández Calvo was born in La Rioja (Spain) and studied Fine Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Cuenca where she is now completing her Phd. She was researcher in philosophy and aesthetics at the Italian ministry of Culture. Living in Italy and Ireland for eleven years and she has developed her practice at an international level working also in South Africa, Senegal, Morocco, Ireland, Italy and Spain amongst other countries. She has participated in exhibitions such as No soul for sale in the Turbine Hall in London; Utopia station curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Molly Nesbit and Rirkrit Tiravanija for the 53rd Venice Biennale; Influx, reflux, reflex in the National Gallery, Johannesburg, Crown Shyness curated by Beatriz Alonso for Frac Lorraine (Metz, France) and Marco (Vigo, Spain) and To want to seem night at Ca2m (Madrid). She has been awarded numerous prizes for her work both nationally and internationally and has taken part in many international artist residencies. Her work speculates on the re-wording of built environments through a variety of collaborative methods specific to each situation, including those outside of architectural and artistic traditions. This engagement and the processes that stem from it translate into ephemeral interventions in galleries, public and domestic contexts. These interventions are at once socially engaged and participatory.


Helga Franza was in Messina, Italy

Helga Franza (Messina, 1967) is based in Milan since 1990. Her practice is multidisciplinary. She uses painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, web based works and curatorial projects. She obsessively explores the act of drawing through different media – sewing, wire wall reliefs, sketchbook drawing, and in this way her work becomes sculptural. Her work is a tireless search – and interpretation – of time/space that she materializes through a wide range of techniques and themes/subjects of work. She traces lines over and over again. They become vibrant everyday objects, speaking animals or far away landscapes. ‘Present tense’ and ‘distance’ appear to be constant components of her work. Sometimes those lines – present and distance- overlap and a strong and enlightening possibility of future emerges. She also works on several curatorial and collective art projects like (a collective blog based on drawing), Cose Cosmiche (a platform-catalyst for artists, scientists, and researchers across various disciplines), Arthur Cravan Foundation and Les When exhibited her works offer an intricate arrangement of outcomes, results and maneuvres that suggest the possibility of an alternative multi-dimensional vision of a world made by phenomenal objects and information
