APNOA is an audiovisual collaboration, founded by Sebastian Drack and Tobias Feldmeier in 2013. The artists aim for forward-thinking ideas and strategies in practice and theory, in order to provide immersive multi-sensory experiences and narratives, presented as audiovisual performances, installations and multimedia productions.
Their works are settled in the field of performative interaction and seek for an ambiguous character generating synesthetic correlations within the act-theoretical semantics and immediate, aesthetic perception. More at www.apnoa.com & https://vimeo.com/apnoa.
Šimon Sykora is a painter of everyday horrors who observes how things (do not) come and go / happen. The world Sykora depicts appears as if glimpsed through a hole in a wall, from behind a fence or as if one were peering through a curtain or veil. Distorted figures are placed in settings that are often abstract in manner. On one hand, he uses painting as a long-term process of reduction. On the other hand, he tries to balance this concentrated approach with slightly haphazard compositions where figures nearly soak up into their surroundings. The author shows the world in its purest form, unadorned, and in its proper clothing. Follow him on Instagram @sykora.simon.
Israel’s work combines theatre, stage design and light-art installations as part of a personal research towards space. He researches around space to encounter the possibilities of convergence within different artistic structures.
His project Chakana.60 is a geometric exploration of the chakana, an ancient symbol native of the Andean indigenous communities, which contains in its composition several elements of the Andean worldview. The work is created from the iteration of this base form, generating a mandalic composition with the projection of its shadow into space.
