Maria Ayub,Mexico,Photography

I am a photographer, passionate by the reality and the infinite possibility of its modification. I always been curious about other cultures and its form of expression through time. I want to explore in that reality and keep learning as an artist.


Edwin Easydorchik,UK,Visual 


My work involves the construction of three dimensional structures which are then compressed and located on and within a flat painted surface.These works explore the relationship between the tactile nature of an object and its constructed identity on a plane.They derive from processes intrinsic to Drawing an Painting where elements of the real world are translated in two dimensions.Much of my work has been on a large scale and has often been made for specific places.The surfaces are usually heavily worked and enhanced by the use of exotic materials.My three month residency in Beijing will be to Fottage , upon cloth , the exterior of an entire traditional Chinese Hutong.


Katrin Hornek,Austria,sculpture, research based, video, foto

I am an Austrian artist, born in 1983, based in Vienna. After completing an exchange program at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen and visiting CalArts in Los Angeles as a guest student, I finished my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (Monica Bonvicini) in 2008. 

Staging a dialogue between the industrial and digital revolution, my work in sculpture, installation and photography has been focusing on changing ideas of nature (1 to 3), through collapsing fields of scientific research, architecture and anthropology. Being caught by ideas around the Anthropocene theory - claiming that humans make nature - my main focus in Beijing will investigate hybrid relationships between things that grow and objects that form.
After two self-organized residencies in Mongolia (2007/2009), I have been attending several artist residency scholarship programs including the National Sculpture Factory (Ireland, 2009), RMIT, Melbourne (2011), Banff Centre (2012), MAK Schindler-Scholarship Program, L.A. (2013).My work was recently shown at the 4 th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Office Hours, Los Anegles, Kunstraum Lakeside in Austria and Ellen de Bruijne PROJECTS / Dolores in Amsterdam.

Blood Becomes Water

Rosie Eisor, Bulgaria

Raya Rayax, Bulgaria

A collective formed by Bulgarian duo Rosie Eisor & Raya Rayax in 2010, are coming to Beijing to assemble a print publication on tetraphobia, the fear and avoidance of the number 4 in East Asian cultures, and its manifestations in products, architecture, and food. They plan to create an immersive experience for the publication's launch to encourage people to consider and confront their reactions and preconceived notions about numbers.

Ming Lin, USA/Hong Kong

Alexandra Tatarsky, USA

A thematic inquiry based around an ever changing storefront in Hong Kong, takes the form of collaboration between New-York based poet, performer and translator Alexandra Tatarsky and Hong Kong-based art critic, writer, and researcher Ming Lin. The duo plans to carry out "Super Taste with Sporty and Metropolitan Berber Embroideries", a performance and print project around the mutated version of English that appears on printed textiles in China. "Rather than investigating the pragmatic root of these texts, Tatarsky and Lin seek to uplift these unusual aphorisms, reveling in their linguistic feats and finding inspiration in the potential agency of grammatical inaccuracy."
