Robertas Narkus describes his practice as the management of circumstance in the economy of coincidence. He brings together the ordinary and the absurd to explore notions of chance economics, hypothetical experiences and symbolic capital.

In her work Victoria Brannstrom problematises gender, conventions and status and work mainly with subjects around woman’s traditional craftwork. By social interactions and performance she investigate situations and norms. She also works with nature, as an inspiration, material and arena.
