Mere Phantoms
Canadian artists Maya Ersan and Jamie Robson, known collectively as Mere Phantoms, use shadow puppetry, projection, animation techniques and inspiration from the traditions of theatre and cinema to design their spectacular interactive installations.

Paper, scissors and light is basically all it takes to produce dazzlingly beautiful models of buildings, monuments and puppets that have captivated audiences worldwide. Lit from below, these paper models become enlarged, growing into dangerous giants and strange, towering figures several stories high. Working with the ephemeral qualities of time-based media, Mere Phantoms create immersive environments that rely on audience participation, and explore the possibilities of positioning the visitors as performers.

At BRANDTS 13, Mere Phantoms will transform the beautiful Sculpture Hall into a grandiose total theatre with their installation 3 CITIES; A SHADOW TRIPTYCH, where the visitors, armed with light, can go on an interactive discovery tour in a fairy tale-like universe. 

Peter Martensen
The father figure of the past has been brought down, and the modern man of today is under attack from all sides; Danish painter Peter Martensen depicts the anonymous anti-hero of today. His paintings feature men wearing white shirts and living efficient lives in familiar open office landscapes. But around them chaos is encroaching, documents are flying through the air and water is slowly rising waist high. Is it perhaps their own, inner nature overtaking them? From Grid To Romance presents paintings dating from the early 1990s up to the present as well as a selection of drawings and films by Peter Martensen.
