Güneş Terkol takes inspiration from her immediate surroundings, collecting materials and stories, which she weaves into her sewing pieces, videos, sketches and musical compositions. The protagonists of her narratives, humorously represented by Terkol in her work, are usually women adapting or refusing to adapt to the social and cultural transformations that affect contemporary Turkey. The act of sewing and using recycled fabrics becomes, in itself, an act of resistance which claims back a form of independent production and widens access to contemporary art. She also member of HaZaVuZu artist collective and GuGuOu group keeps working.
Güneş Terkol, born 1981, is a Turkish artist based in Istanbul. She graduated from Mimar Sinan University, Fine Art Faculty, Painting Department. She completed her master’s degree in Yildiz Teknik University Interdisciplinary Art Department.

Born in 1961, in Trbovlje, Slovenia, the artist lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He is one of the founders and a member of the IRWIN Group, established in 1983. The initiative founded in Ljubljana (Slovenia) was instrumental in the establishment of the design department “Novi Kolektivizem” and the artists collective “Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK)” in Yugoslavia. After establishing a specific visual language in its predominantly pictorial projects in the 1980s, IRWIN focused on a critical comparative review between the art history of “Western Modernism”, and the “retro-avant-garde” of “Eastern Modernism” in the 90s.
Since 2015, Radenko Milak and Roman Uranjek have been exhibiting the works of their DATES partnership at venues such as Duplex100m2 in Sarajevo, Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Galerija Matica Srpske in Novi Sad, and the Cankarjev dom in Ljubljana.
Born in 1980, in Travnik, Yugoslavia, the artist lives and works in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He had participated in more than 30 solo and group exhibition projects in various countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia, France, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Austria. His installation consisting of 33 watercolour paintings, titled “So close and yet so far” was shown at the 4th Çanakkale Biennial in 2014.
Having his works in major collections in Germany, France and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milak was also the director of the Center for Visual Communication Protok in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the International Biennial SpaPort. He currently has ongoing exhibitions at the Boghossian Foundation in Brussels; Kunsthalle Darmstadt; and the Bucharest National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC).
Born in Sao Paulo in 1977, the Brazilian artist has been living in Istanbul for 13 years and continues working on plants through drawings, videos, photography, performances and installations.
In 2015-2016 she has realized the site-specific installation “Sefatoryum” at Istanbul Modern, in the exhibition “Till It’s Gone” curated by Çelenk Bafra and Paolo Colombo. In her proposition of the concept of a new man-made environment the artist was both blessing nature in a neo-pagan way and creating a playground that aims to evoke the feeling of being together with nature and the pleasure of being in a garden.
In spring 2014, she rented an abandoned florist shop at Sigorta Pasajı, the only building in Cihangir that has not undergone urban transformation, and realized her “FloriKültür” project here. By juxtaposing living plants with drawings, images and self-cultivated plants and seeds she transformed this abandoned place into a “wonderland”. The addition of sounds of life from the city of Istanbul into the installation brought another dimension to this multi-layered work.
In addition to these exhibitions, she participated in the 10th Istanbul Biennial with “Nightcomers” and in the 3rd Tirana Biennial with “Catching up”, a project realized in collaboration with Hüseyin Bahri Alptekin.
Russian artist Vadim Fishkin was born in 1965 and lived in Moscow until 1996 when he moved to Ljubjana, Slovenia. He always tries to explore the relationship between science and arts with his interactive installations incorporating photographs, audio elements and light projections. The artist challenges the laws of physics with the electronic and illuminated objects he creates and he reflects the complex technology applied by puzzling all senses to the poetic character of his style in his installations using sound, air and light.
He draws attention with the high number of solo exhibitions and group exhibitions he participated in cities such as Moscow, Paris, Rome and Berlin among which 1995, 2003 and 2005 Venice Biennials and the 9th Shanghai Biennial are the most remarkable ones. Following his solo exhibitions in many cities of Europe and his participation in Venice and Shanghai biennials, Fishkin participated in Manifesta 10 Biennial organized St. Petersburg in the lead of Chief Curator Kasper Konig that has always been subject to debates due to his critical approach about the crisis between Russia and Ukraine.
The artist’s works are given place in the collections of many important organizations such as Russian State Museum St. Petersburg and Incom Bank.
