Teresa Cos is an artist exploring the processes of memory and repetition underlying history, society and human psychology, similarly to those inherent to sound and image composition. Her interdisciplinary practice encompasses film, video and sound installation, visual scoring, experimental music composition and performance.

Teresa has taken part in several international residency programmes, including WIELS, Jan Van Eyck Academy, Visio-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images and the Botín Foundation workshop with Tacita Dean.
Patrick Ward is an artist working with moving-image, sound and music in various modes of exhibition, performance and installation. Consisting of YouTube rips and iPhone recordings Ward’s audio works layer digital remnants of cinematic fragments into crumbling, concréte collages.
Li Yilei is a London-based multi-disciplinary artist and composer working across performance, text, theatre, sculpture, and installation. With a background in fine art and sound art, their body of work finds profundity in subtlety and the banal, translated into abstracted sonic and visual languages. Li’s body of work and musical releases reflect their practice of alternative modes of listening and existence, as well as the contemplation of phenomena.Their musical work, which polarises between tranquil and minimalist, and abrasive and harsh, frequently incorporates found objects, theremins, tapes, field recordings, modular synths, and the guqin. Raised by a Buddhist nun, Li’s work is strongly influenced by the Eastern ideologies of emptiness, zen, and transience. Being on the autistic spectrum, Li’s sensory processing issues and neurodivergent perceptions significantly informs their creative process, and their work can be perceived as a product of this navigation.Since 2017, Li has been performing internationally and releasing music, as well as composing and producing for theatre. Their work has been showcased and performed in museums, concert halls, and international festivals, as well as reviewed/featured in various digital and print publications.
