XiongYanzhi was born in China and she lives in Beijing and London, after completing a MA degree in Opera Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, and another MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, Yan was undertaken and with this, an extended period of experimentation was inaugurated in which the boundaries of operatic voice, digital sound, dance, installation, painting, video, photography, performance were explored. Each of these mediums was utilised to create new spatial modes of difference, to draw lines around the emerging patterns of the in-between, and to produce ranges of tonal inflexions that gave rise to mobile, effective encounters. There was within this, a search for the articulation the body as a medium for being-with the other in which the dialectic of offering and withdrawal might be rendered sensible. At the heart of this endeavour is the exploration of different ways of exploring memory, especially in the form of echoes, gestures and traces that might open out the lost continents of being. In disengaging time from its passing, Yan strikes an affinity with Levinas when she develops the notion that art endures on the hither side of time within a region she describes as the meanwhile (an interval between neither and nor) and it is this registration that opens an aesthetic realm of suspension. Within this realm anything might pass through; mediums, affects, intensities and encounters because of the way it mediates the relationship between the void and the yet-to-come.

熊晏之,1989年生于中国贵州,现居北京和伦敦, 2016年获英国皇家音乐学院的歌剧硕士学位,2018年获英国皇家艺术学院绘画硕士学位。晏之的作品多以数字声音、歌剧、装置、绘画、视频、摄影、行为等不同媒介的空间差异为起点,调试及调度媒介之间的音调变化,频率节奏,以及结构的重塑。这一过程的核心是尤声音作为切入点,用行为及绘画去探索, 用空间作为踏板,试图从物理空间上升到精神空间再回归至心灵空间,通过多维度的体悟去打开对未来的记忆的同时又回归当下本身。
