Laia Estruch

Her practice is within the framework of the performance from where she works with the voice as a main raw material, structuring element, device, and space of experimentation of her artistic proposals. Her projects articulate strategies to make audible, through the voice, textual contents or graphics from diverse files, to create new ones, from the composition of scores and the sound recording that is generated at the time of oralizing them

Among her selected projects are: Serendipity, Arts visuals 2011 (Sala d’Art Jove de la Generalitat de Catalunya), Jingle (Espai Cub, BCN Producció 2011, La Capella), En lloc d’actuar fabulo, projecte deslocalitzat, presented at the Villarroel Theatre (BCN Producció 2012), Moat, Artistas en Residencia 2017 (La Casa Encendida and the CA2M).

Patricio Rivera

His recent work is concerned with the relationship between society, its forms of production and technology. He investigates the movements and changes in these ways, trying to identify the underlying elements of power that operate and define the social system. Society is put in reflection starting from the analysis of the technological framework, where the artist is considered an agent. For this purpose he uses concepts such as computational algorithms, digital manufacturing, numerical machine control, automation, robotics and visual representation of data.

William Ludwig Lutgens

Lives and works in Ghent, where he is currently attending the post-academic programme at the HISK (Higher Institute of Fine Arts).
In 2015, Lutgens graduated in a Master of Research in Art and Design (Manama), after doing a Master in Illustration and Graphic Design at St Lucas University College of Art and Design Antwerp. His works have been shown internationally.
In his work Ludwig combines autobiographical elements with social issues to denounce abuses and hypocrisy in a language that is both political and comical. Like a comedian he complements references to different subjects trough the use of personal anecdotes in a form similar to that of improvisational jazz, looking for templates and narratives to highlight, not forcing his perspective, but leaving the spectator somewhere in a limbo,
between two moments: the playful and the serious, amusement and discomfort.
