Károly Tendl (b. 1989, Budapest) lives and works in London. He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2019 with an MA in Contemporary Art Practice: Critical Practice, and previously studied Contemporary Media Practice at the University of Westminster. He works with text, the emergence and dislocation of culture and identity, sound, new and old ideologies, dark nostalgia, speculative prose and installation. Károly fictions around the ideas of the urban and rural, planetary periphery and centre, and often around some of the shared sensibilities under oppressive regimes among the European non-homogenous working classes, the uncomfortable weight of class mobility and the dull sword of cultural capital.

Nóra Teplán (b. 1990, Budapest) lives and works in Budapest, Hungary. She started her studies in Sociology at the Eötvös Loránd University of Sciences, while she later applied to the painting department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts.
Teplán’s minimalist monochrome works are the imprints of a subjective interpretation of existence indicating contemplation from diverse perspectives. With the use of different mediums – paintings, objects and texts – re-cognition and disintegration, reconstruction and obedience are in the focus of her works. Besides an extremely strong subjectivity and intuitive method of creation – there is a sort of scientific, recording-systematizing attitude, by which she seeks to grasp seemingly ephemeral associations and fantasies.

Joonhong Min (b.1984, Korea) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in London and Seoul. He received a BFA and MFA in painting from Seoul National University (2014) and an MFA with Distinction in Fine Art Media from SLADE School of Fine Art, University College London (2016).
