Alice Jones is a British Jamaican artist from London. Now living in Berlin – Jones draws from both an European tradition and the traditions of black and Caribbean diasporas – negotiating lost histories, imposed histories and the resulting displacement of her own racial and gender identity. Through painting, photographic collage and mono-printing Jones explores the concept of ‘Zusammensetzung’ – the creation of new meaning through collocation - reconfiguring language and her material surroundings to depict contradictions both social and personal. Currently Jones contributes as an illustrator to gal-dem magazine and as a photographer to GROUND Magazine.
Hi, my name is Ya Ya, I was born in Donetsk, graduate from the Moscow State University. In the last two years I have been doing mobile photography, with a regular set of themes; it means repeat and self-repeat which are framed by the obsessivecompulsive lifestyle in megapolies like Moscow.
Also I continue to develop the topic of the impact of Social Tech on people in megacities through psychological and philosophical perspectives, particularly fixing and analyzing the transformation of bodies and its position in relation to public spaces.
Charlotte Seebeck, I'm a props and projects maker, pigment lover, city dweller, water-site seeker and wild knowledge picker.
