Short artwork intros from the residing artists of DA5 and DA4
Jeanne Tullen's (Geneva) is a multidisciplinary artist and DA5 fellow. Her practice is concerned with our relationships with others and with ourselves. Through multidisciplinary works in the fields of image, installation, performance and sound, she delves into the relationships that build, weaken and fictionalise us. She is interested in the complexity of emotions, desires and relationships that permeate contemporary life.
Sasha Kochetkova (Paris) is engaged in multidisciplinary practices, working with painting and digital media:
“In my works I talk about how elements of material memory manifest themselves in posthuman identity through the process of glitch. I look for points of contact between errors in the physical world and machine glitches and create a chronicle of posthuman existance.”

Nanda Raemansky (1980) is a multidisciplinary painter from Eede, a small border village in the South West of the Netherlands in the delta area, where Belgium and Holland meet.
Themes of Nanda’s work often point back to the artistic, musical and largely anacho-communist environment of her childhood. Her practice is a careful methodology of medium manipulation, and she often starts with capturing her subject in photographs. Hear Nanda talking about her project – "Terneuzen: A Post Coffeeshop City".
Alfiya Shamsutdinova (Kazan) is a performance artist and dance therapist. The artistic and dance therapy practices of Alfiya Shamsutdinova are intertwined and nourish one another. The area of artistic interest lies in the attempt to designate and accept the human body expanded into the digital world in its physical and digital integrity.
The project Alfiya has created for DA5 is "Dance Game”. "Dance Game" is a no-gain art game. The user is suggested to follow the thumb of a person scrolling her phone that they see on the screen.
Ruth Baettig:
"Daydreaming, or dreaming with eyes wide open, has always fascinated me. It is often related to cinema, also because it is a territory where imagination and memory meet, intertwine, even melt together. Can we imagine our memories? Can we remember our imagination? These are borderline situations, which I like to experience – placet experiri".

Vlad Dovgopyaty and Sonata Raiymkulova:
In the "Anger of the Amorphous" we combine two aesthetics – the image of an amorphous organism, consisting of the bodies of people drawn in and bogged down in it like in a swamp, and the aesthetics of anger.

Polina Enuvesta:
"In "Dimensional quatrain", I explore the possibilities of the intersection of such expressive genre as poetry and – virtual spaces.
