Dick Hedlund is an artist based in Malmö, currently completing his M.F.A at the Malmö Art Academy. Dick’s work is often situated somewhere between sculpture and painting, exploring the boundaries separating the image from the object. His work is characterised by a depth and materiality, producing pieces which appear to extend beyond the bounds of the canvass, seemingly connected to another world of which we can only glimpse as fragments.

Johan Österholm is an artist and photographer, predominantly working with large format cameras and photosensitive materials in order to appropriate and visualize traces and passages through time. He has a strong interest in the history of photography, the photographic process and its ability to speak to something that lies beyond the present day: of the traces that previous generations have left behind, and those that we ourselves will leave. Österholm’s works are included in the Hasselblad Foundation, Sweden and in private collections in Sweden and USA, and is currently working towards his Master’s degree at Malmö Art Academy. He lives in Malmö, Sweden. (johanosterholm.se)
