Yuyan Wang (b. 1989, China) is a filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist living in Paris. She graduated from Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2016 and Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains in 2020.

Her works oscillate between film and installation, often in an immersive perspective with a disintegrating abstraction process.
Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, initially in sculpture before moving into photography and Super 8 film. After his degree, he taught himself 16mm filmmaking and hand-processing. His practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Often following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides Rivers with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds.
