Francesco Candeloro was born in 1974 in Venice, city where he studied and graduated from the Fine Arts Academy and in which he currently lives and works. The artist places at the core of his very personal research the dimensions of light and colour, sign and shape, proportion, rhythm and movement and uses them as keys to deepen spatial and temporal dynamics. For Candeloro “art is a vision of the time”, vision which he translates through the transparencies of the coloured plexiglass, his elective and most congenial material, employed for the realization of the various types of artworks of his articulated production.

Maurice Nio (1959) graduated cum laude as an architect in 1988 at the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology on a villa for Michael Jackson, the most curious final project of that year. This project has been of vital importance to his hybrid approach. Through a mixture of mythological and pragmatic mental processes, cryptic and at the same time utterly transparent design strategies, he has realized projects at BDG Architekten Ingenieurs (1991-1996), such as the enormous waste incinerator aviTwente. At VHP stedebouwkundigen + architekten + landschapsarchitekten (1997-1999) he realized the Zuidtangent, the longest highquality public transport line in Europe. As from January 1st, 2000 he operates from his own design studio NIO architecten and currently works on the most beautiful shopping centre in the world and the most obscure houseboat in the Netherlands. Maurice Nio gives many lectures home and abroad, but has decided he no longer wants to be a teacher on art schools, academies or universities, and would like to design books again, or make his eighth video production, or else write new articles on urban development, architecture, film, video, television, photography or dance. Achievements anyway are his books You Have the Right to Remain Silent (1998) and Unseen I Slipped Away (2004).

for objects separated from their community context.
Pawel und Pavel work is essentially a minimal and not ephemeral collective performative practice.

Her investigation is on love as feeling to be discovered, as motivation to act and as the understanding of the implication which drives humanity in its process towards awareness. It is the going beyond the self to encounter the other, that creates relationship. The relationship is therefore seen as a common space, a kind of laboratory where, without loosing our identity, we aspire to communion.
