Marianne Hoffmeister’s work focuses on the role and value of narrative and fiction in the construction of knowledge. Through drawing, video and installation, she plays with narrative hybrids, shared cultural imagery or alternative stories that shift linguistic and cultural boundaries that function as unintended, accidental phenomena between the lines of fiction, the mundane and the poetic.

Matthew McGaughey’s work explores heteronormative masculinities and their hegemonic tendencies through the lens of personal history, media tropes, and dominant cultural practices. Using performance, video, narrative structures, and sound, his work creates scenarios of bifurcation and reconnection in order to reveal the unconscious social forces that inform dominant identities.
