Simon Schubert (b.1976, Germany) - Reigen. Synthetic hair, plaster, Polyurthane foam, acrylic, fabric, metal, wood, leather (2009)

Simon Schubert is an artist based in Cologne, Germany. From 1997 to 2004 he trained at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the sculpture class of Irmin Kamp. Inspired by Surrealism as well as by Samuel Beckett, Schubert’s works imagine architectural settings, common situations and objects, whereas the materials he uses are either simple or sophisticated - white paper folded or mixed media arrangements. Some of his paper foldings entered the West Collection, Oaks, PA, while the Saatchi Collection, London, owns sculptural works in mixed media. In 2008, Schubert received the ZVAB Phönix Art Award for new-comers.

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro | on Tumblr (b.1980, Italy) - B E A U T Y

Italian experimental animator and director Rino Stefano Tagliafierro graduated at the ISIA of Urbino and IED - European Institute of Design in Milan. He has made many music videos for major Italian and international artists and collaborated with studio Bazzani for the production of fashion video for designer and with studioN!03 for videoprojection and interactiveinstallations for exhibitions, museums and special events.

Over the years he has had experience in visual art and videomapping with Claudio Sinatti and assistant director, art-direction and compositing with the study K48. In 2013 he gave birth along with other two filmmakers on the project audio/visual Karmachina. He has participated in many festivals and competitions, receiving several international awards. In 2014 he published the short animated film BEAUTY that brings the tradition of pictorial beauty to life.

"An inspiration that returns to us the sense of one fallen, and the existential brevity that the author interprets as tragic dignity, with an unenchanted eye able to capture the profoundest sense of the image. Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of Life, inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat ad infinitum. They are, from the inception of a romantic sunrise in which big black birds fly to the final sunset beyond gothic ruins that complete the piece, a work of fleeting time." (Giuliano Corti for BEAUTY Manifesto)
