I. Nakhla aka end measure

I. Nakhla aka end measure is a London based artist and musician. Nakhla has exhibited and performed work in spaces across the UK, including The Bloomsbury Theatre London, and The Saatchi Gallery. Recent projects include a limited edition vinyl record, large-scale drawings, augmented reality scores, spoken word and musical radio experiments. Nakhla’s practice is a mashup of music, writing, drawing and performance. Their work takes the form of rhythmic, bodily, and mechanical investigations into affect and transmission. Nakhla shape shifts, transcends and magnifies her voice as an act of queer-feminist protest and play. Improvisation, interdependence and collaboration form a large part of their practice, whilst emphasising fun as a radical tool of agency.

Nanzhen Yang

Nanzhen Yang is a Chinese-born, London based visual artist and DJ. She plays with the rhythm between text, digital moving images, and sound. Her sound works are normally formed by the fragments of field recordings as the found objects to sculpt new continuing works. She works by mixing field recordings and human voices as samples for adding narratives and contexts in her sets. Nanzhen wishes you could practise yoga and meditation while dancing with the sound. Her sound pieces and DJ sets are made to take people on a physical and emotional journey.
