The gravitational force in the work of Daragh Reeves seems to be his preoccupation with the ambivalent/uncertain status of the image. The images Reeves composes or creates -whether they are drawings, sketches, slides, films or videos– do not reveal their source nor their destination. They seem to deliberately hesitate between being visual renderings of ideas, semi-functional entities, film quotations or representations of idiosyncratic thoughts. Reeves moreover has a predilection for neologisms and uses language as a flexible tool to conjure up a cast of fictional figures and fragment stories, partly based on the existence and achievements of film directors, movie stars and friends. (Quote Ann Demeester)

Zoran Terzic (1969, Banja Luka – former Yugoslavia) lives and works in Berlin. The artist embraces a wide range of different practices within the body of his work. Through philosophy, music, painting, video, object making and drawing he reflects upon how knowledge is constructed within an (specifically his own) arts practice.
