Robert Montgomery follows a tradition of conceptual art and stands out by bringing a poetic voice to the discourse of text art. Montgomery creates billboard poems, light pieces, fire poems, woodcuts and watercolors. He was the British artist selected for Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2012, the first biennale in India. Montgomery has had solo exhibitions at venues in Europe and in Asia, including major outdoor light installations on the site of the old US Air Force base at Tempelhof. The first monograph of his work was published by Distanz, Berlin in 2015.
Carali McCall’s practice engages primarily in performance and drawing. Awarded her MFA at Slade School of Art and PhD at Central Saint Martins, McCall is involved in rigorous academic research and presents her work alongside a range of audiences and disciplines. Represented by Woolff Gallery UK, and Gryder Gallery in USA, McCall exhibits and performs artworks internationally. A co-author of an upcoming book, Performance Drawing: New Practices since 1945, McCall is interested in questioning the role of the artist today. Currently, awarded Arts Council England funding for her artwork, RUN VERTICAL (Running up the Side of a Building).
Miles Tuddenham is a multidisciplinary investigative artist working within the domains of time-based media, technical installation, post-internet immersion and digital forensic studies. As a present student of Central Saint Martins, studying a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (4D), Tuddenham is in the midst of developing his professional practice within contemporary art and technological research, after a previous stretch of education and experience within the film industry. His work aims to explore and investigate the existence of digital/analogue conflicts, tackle childhood curiosity through sculptural and performative satire, and launch technical investigations through forensic research within modern digital practice.
Thomas Coulson’s work focuses on the mental limitations of the human being. Exploring personal narratives in relation to religion and the transgressions of sexual escapades. Through the formations of texts, scripts, and site specifics, he hot-plates the subjects, to recontextualise their fragments and stand them as a testament to the archaic monoliths standing not only as architectural view points, but over sentimentalised rulings of society.
