Emma Campbell is an artist, activist, lapsed academic and Abortion Nerd®, all of which she throws into her practice. Learning from previous generations of feminist artists, she illuminates the structural inequalities that face abortion seekers and activists. As she regained her Belfast bearings this decade, she was welcomed into a fury of Feminists, Queers and Artists who join her in exposing the infected shaving rash of our twisted culture.
Emma has shown her work in Belfast, Dublin, Berlin, Stockholm, Prince Edward Island, Bangkok, Prince Town SA and London.

Ralf

 

Ralf Sander studied fine art at the Berlin Academy of Art (UDK). His investigation into a broad range of fine art disciplines manifests variously as sculpture, installation, video, collaborative – and site-specific projects.

He articulated an ongoing critical concern for our perception of nature and for themes such as ecology and the handling of natural resources in his World Saving Machine projects focusing on transformation of current thinking and awareness production.  A great number of his works are also on permanent public display in Museums, collections and in the public realm, worldwide.
