Kim Coleman  (b.1976, Lisburn, Northern Ireland) is a London-based artist whose work relates to the performativity of people, places and objects. Through light and expanded moving image works, she aims to heighten the sensual awareness of the staging of an event. Her approach emphasises friendship, which is echoed in both her investment in collaborative practice, and development of a number of artist-led activities. Solo and collaborative works have been staged at Tate Britain, The Showroom, Jerwood Visual Arts, Kings Cross, Serpentine Screen and Frieze Projects at Frieze London.

Cara Tolmie (b. 1984, Glasgow, UK) is a Scottish artist based in London and Stockholm. Tolmie works from within the intersections of performance, music and moving image. Her works probe the site-specific conditions of performance-making by finding ways to vocalise and place her body that access the political and poetic capabilities of physical, written and musical languages. She has exhibited widely across the UK, including at Spike Island, Bristol, Tate Modern, London, and Tramway, Glasgow. Several of her performances have attracted international regard, including contributions at the Dutch Art Institute, Arnhem the Sixty Eight Art Institute, Copenhagen, and with KUDA in Novi Sad. In 2017, (“uh”) books will also publish Tolmie’s first solo vinyl project, Incongruous Diva.
