Louise Harris lives in Reykjavik, & her startling felted artworks 'Foldarskart' were first shown in Iceland's Textile Museum 2018 & Finland's annual Climate Conference 2019. They refer to the fragile beauty of the native flora of her beloved Iceland. Jez Gray lives in Niton, and has collaborated with Icelandic artists this year to create a new electro-acoustic performance in response to Louise's 'Foldarskart'.

Albedo Marz lives in Ventnor. His new 'Nightmind' paintings & collages address the volatile theatre of everyday life, a world in which historical memory lies in ruins as society sleepwalks towards tearing itself apart.

Jo Kori lives in Ventnor and is showing a new series of photographed drawing interactions from this year, along with an installation and her 14 minute film based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman's 19th century short story 'The Yellow Wallpaper'.
