Based in Margate UK, Kris Lock’s practice, focused mainly on painting, sculpture and video, explores the different mechanisms and components that underpin socio-political geographies. Often speculating on future or alternative relationships to places at the intersections of currency, technology and materialism. Recent concerns have been centred on oceanic territories, artificial islands and libertarianism.
Josephine Sweeney is an artist working in sculpture and sometimes video, sound and performance. Her work is often motivated by thinking on how mythic themes and industrial processes exist together. She is particularly interested in how architectural monuments operate. Currently she is investigating the idea of globalisation – from the transnational stories of scam emails to trade networks and shipping lane
