Ascending to international acclaim in recent years, Abdessemed has exhibited extensively on the international stage, with major solo shows in Doha, London, and San Francisco amongst others, as well as being selected to exhibit at 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. Throughout his distinguished career, Abdessemed has continually re-invented the potential of the media in which he chooses to work, forming an eclectic corpus that stands as a testament to his triumphal embrace of universal themes.
Douglas Gordon is a Scottish artist; he won the Turner Prize in 1996 and the following year he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Much of Gordon's work is seen as being about memory and uses repetition in various forms. He uses material from the public realm and also creates performance-based videos. His work often overturns traditional uses of video by playing with time elements and employing multiple monitors.
