Anna Story was born in Świdnica, Poland, in 1984, she is a graduate of the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław.

”I use my pencils (or ink) to translate emotions and mental states onto the page. The images I create are fed by an endless curiosity of human behaviour and its conditioning.”

Aleksandra Malczewska, born in Warsaw in 1989, attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and Łódź.

She is particularly intrigued by people and their quirks, which are transferred on paper with the use of techniques such as pencil and crayons or ink.

Helga Páley born in 1987 in Reykjavik, graduated with a BA in Fine Art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts 2011 and later studied motion creation from Hyper Island in Stockholm 2018.

“I like to draw thinks that makes me laugh, if it’s not funny it has to satisfy my eye in some eccentric way”

Korkimon is a visual artist born in 1995 in Reykjavik, she graduated from Sarah Lawrence College (NY) in 2017.

In a world overloaded with information, she eagerly wanders and gallops from one particularly interesting hole to the next, with her best plan: no plan. The denouement always ripe with ambiguity and accidental meanings, viscerally fleshy.

Yyngrii, born in Reykjavík in 1991, has been publicly active in Iceland and abroad for half of her life through various solo and group exhibitions as well as live performances.

In her work she celebrates her own connection with nature and other dimensions.

Although the work of these five artists stretches across different mediums and approaches, we traced a leitmotif within the exhibition which strongly resonated with us, hidden within strong lines and powerful images that reveal the beauty of imperfection, often with irony and humor, sometimes leading to deeper discoveries.
