Edoardo Aruta (Rome, 1981) lives and works in Venice. He studied at Rome’s Belle Arti Academy and at Venice’s IUAV University. He has worked as a scenographer and costumer in theatre and cinema. His research focuses on the study of the languages of art and on how they are determined according to the relationship that a man has with space and the social context that accommodates him, using the artistic act as a mean to make a cognitive and explorative experience of the given environment. Such exploration brought him to include various types of languages in his practice, from the more classical approaches of sculpture, to installation, photography, drawing and the creation of alternative spaces.

Riccardo Banfi (Milan, b. 1986) is a photographer who lives and works in between Milan and Venice.

William West (b. 1964, England)

 

William West gained his BA in Sculpture from Central St. Martins College of Fine Art, London. He lives and works in Pavia, Italy.

As for West's work, his why's and his worries, they follow a particular narrative of nothingness and emptiness, of failure and error in the context of man, beast, and notions of virtue.  A form of anti Wunderkammer.
