David Bestue, Mateo Lopez and Gunes Terkol introduce their practice and discuss their plans for the three-month stay in London.

David Bestue uses different media to manipulate ideas drawn from philosophy, art history, architecture and film. By making small changes to public and domestic scenarios, his works create absurd situations that question the conventions of human behaviour.

Mateo Lopez creates studio-like situations in which the production and display of the work overlap. His source material includes drawings, notes and photographs which are often taken in his journeys.

Gunes Terkol draws inspiration from her immediate surroundings to sew and draw, compose music and make videos. The protagonists of her often humorous narratives are usually women adapting or refusing to adapt to the social and cultural transformations taking place in Turkey.
