Taxio Ardanaz (Pamplona, 1978) Ardanaz examines the plastic forms that arise from specific historical conflicts. This investigation is primarily rooted in painting and its installation elements.
Justine Grillet is a young visual artist and musician who creates ceramic and steel sculptures from which she extracts unique sounds. Grillet uses her steel constructions not only as a structural framework but also as a platform for her electronic equipment. This arrangement transforms them into a sort of backdrop for her performances.
Artist Amaia Molinet was born in Lodosa, Navarra (1988) and lives and works in Bilbao and Cluj-Napoca, Romania. She holds a Master in Contemporary, Technological and Performative Art and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country. Her artistic approach evolves from an extended form of photography, focusing on the connection between land and identity. She also emphasizes the symbolic aspects of landscapes in her work.
Leire Muñoz (Getxo 1983) holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country. She participated in a workshop given by Lothar Baumgart organized by Fundación Botín and in Oteiza´s seminar ´La crísis de la modernidad´ in Pamplona. Muñoz has been awarded creative scholarships and production grants.
