Sascha Mikloweit and Adriana Galuppo

Sascha Mikloweit

Sascha trained in fine art in Münster, Düsseldorf and at Central Saint Martins, London. Following an interest in violence and ideology, his work engages with the realm of public security including counter-terrorism, value systems and counterfeiting, crime scenes and intelligence services. Format and medium of his work are determined in the process of subject-specific engagement. This often involves detailed ethnographic inquiries, and has included participatory interventions, performance, speculative documentation, video, installations, prints and projections. Most recently, it has assumed the format of minutely documenting and interpreting the remnants of a bag detonated by Counter-Terrorism task forces.Sascha Mikloweit has exhibited in South-Korea, Canada, the UK, Austria, Poland and Germany, and lately a solo-show ‘If You’re Frightend We’ll Protect You’ in Sao Paulo, Brazil. His work is held in public and private collections in Europe and North America. He lives and works in London and Berlin.

Adriana Galuppo

Italian/Brazilian artist graduate from Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, Milan, currently living and working in Liverpool. Whilst studying, Galuppo developed her own artistic practice, focusing primarily on photography, drawing and printmaking, but also extending to installations and video.

Experience of living within different cultures made an impact on the development of her work, seeking understanding beyond the surface of the cities & countries she has called home. Striking images, concepts of identity, and the covert message have been integral to much of her recent work. She strives to achieve something that can have either a political engagement with the spectator or initiate dialogue about the contemporary environment we are part of. She has participated in group exhibitions in Milan, Spectrum Exhibition at WCS Liverpool, and curated together with other artists exhibitions in Milan and the ‘La Cucaracha’ Latin American Film Festival in Paris in 2006 and most recently the exhibition “Neo-Tropicalism – brazilian art is constant mutation” in Liverpool.

Whilst in Liverpool, Sascha and Adriana developed the exhibition Just Another Unexpected Guest.

At TBG+S: 23 July – 3 August 2012

Jonathan Woodward

Jonathan Woodward runs Pointfive with Ste Thorpe. Pointfive is a young design partnership looking to converse with perception and narrative through the alteration and play of materiality. As training architects we are interested in the significance of material, its symbolic gestures and appearance in light and shade. The inherent motivation behind our work is to design and curate objects or spaces that engage participants through experience. Pointfive is supported by Static Gallery and Deutsche Bank. www.pointfive.co

During the first residency, Paul Sullivan, director of Static Gallery carried out a five-day research residency.
