MAŁGORZATA SIDOR (b.1960) Works with photographs, sculpture, objects, phenomena and events, through which she poses and represents a problem that she wants to solve at the moment. Her most significant aim lies beyond the aesthetic effect. The themes of her works are related to fundamental questions of being. She always tries on the one hand to approach the nature of the object, looking at matter, and on the other to recognize lows/mechanisms that govern individuals and societies.

NADEZHDA OLEG LYAHOVA (b1960).
For a time she devoted herself to painting and stage design. It was about 1995
that she appeared on the alternative art scene with sculptures and
installations of hand-made paper. She is concerned with the various
extreme states regarding both space and time. Central to some of her
work is the preoccupation with the incorporation of the environment or
the use of non-durable materials such as soap, ice, etc.
