Chihiro Gompei
She (b.1985, Tokyo) lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. Exploring the relation between a place/space and human, she creates a constellation of things. Chihiro often embodies a void space among humans and nonhumans to question a Eurocentric narrative of place. Recently she showed her work in a group exhibition, #suppercommunity at Dyson Gallery in London (May 2017). Chihiro completes her MA degree in Mixed Media Textiles in Royal College of Art in 2016 and the BA in Literature in Sophia University in 2009. 

Alison Orr
Graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2016. Her work is influenced on the a lifelong interest in Scottish folklore and the Gaelic belief in the Otherworld. She has been involved with ACES, (Access to Creative Education in Scotland) an organisation which works to promote art education in lower achieving schools as a student ambassador. She also collaborate with the Scottish Radical Independence Campaign to bring together an artistic/creative campaign group.
