James Edmonds is an artist / filmmaker from the UK living in Berlin. His practice centres on a personal poetics in which the nature of recording, particularly when approached from the materiality of a medium, offers a tangible yet ultimately paradoxical surface for what is intangible and fleeting - our personal experience, inner worlds, thoughts and reflections. His work manifests in analogue films, painted gestures and long-form soundworks, occasionally combined along with found objects or materials to create immersive environments. He has presented screenings and exhibitions at various venues, project spaces, galleries and cinema events, including Âge d’Or Festival, Brussels, Process Festival Latvia, Fronteira Festival Brasil, 3 137 Athens (with Petra Graf), Macao Milan, Ausland Berlin, and Another Vacant Space Berlin. Since 2015 he also curates the film series Light Movement in Berlin.

Reto Pulfer, artist, born 1981 in Bern, lives in Berlin. His performances incorporate sound, language, the body and words. He enjoys improvising with immersive installations made out of textile, found materials, sounds and novels. Recent exhibitions in Berlin took place at Very (2018), Bärenzwinger (2017) and Haus der Kulturen der Welt (2015). The monograph "Zustandskatalog" was pulished in 2017 by Sternberg Press. Recent solo exhibitions: Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève; Spike Island, Bristol; Centre international d’art et du paysage de l’île de Vassivière; Kunstverein Nürnberg - Albrecht Dürer Gesellschaft, Nuremberg; Swiss Institute, New York.
