GT2P (Santiago, Chile) We are a studio involved in projects of architecture, art and design, established in Santiago, Chile. We are in a continuous process of research and experimentation in digital crafting, promoting new encounters between the technologies for projecting and the richness of the local expressed in traditional materials and techniques. Our work methodology has two dimensions. First, we seek to systematize knowledge and observation, whether of natural, artificial, geometric or spatial, phenomena, through generative algorithms. Here parametric design is a tool to guide the planning of projects that we carry out, enabling the integration of its stages of design, development and production. On the other hand, we have discovered an artistic dimension that connects us with our cultural heritage, through the incorporation of traditional experience and knowledge that feed and qualify the generative algorithms or DNA that we create. Exposing the unexpectedness of manual processes and local materials is a way to value what we are in what we do.

Carla Zaccagnini (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1973) Carla Zaccagnini was born in 1973 in Buenos Aires. In 1981 her family relocated to Brazil, where she continues to live and work. Zaccagnini received her BFA in 1995 from the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo. While there, she studied with artist Nelson Leirner, who encouraged her exploration of theoretical questions through artistic practice. Zaccagnini also received an MA in Visual Poetics from the Universidade de São Paulo in 2004. Zaccagnini views her activities as an artist, curator, and critic as mutually constitutive forms of inquiry that overlap to form a conceptually driven holistic art practice. She works with a variety of media and techniques—from drawing, installation, performance, text, and video, to exhibition curating—in order to explore what she characterizes as a strategy of displacement. By recontextualizing existing objects, and ideas, Zaccagnini’s work prompts viewers to question the limitations of language and representation, the fallibility of perception, and the construction of knowledge.

Paz Errázuriz's photographs are usually organized in thematic series and with them she has shown, over the years, the realities of various marginal subjects, who have been left out of the normality imposed by modern society. Taking portrait, both individual and collective, as her favorite genre, the artist captures images that are realistic and at the same time are loaded

Tunga(Palmares, Brasil, 1952)Tunga (born Jose de Barros Carvalho e Mello) worked in sculpture, installation, photography, poetry, and video. His site-specific installations transform galleries into dreamlike environments with an array of materials, including plastic, thread, and repurposed objects. Though materially intensive, Tunga’s practice was highly conceptual—his works are intentionally enigmatic, meant to resist certainty and confound viewers. For À la Lumière des Deux Mondes (At the Light of Both Worlds) (2007), he hung from a gallery ceiling a massive assemblage of bones, iron, bundles of skulls, metal wire, and bronze replicas of classical sculpture sheathed in mesh, a commentary on the delicate balance between life and death Tunga, Xifópagas Capilares entre Nós (Capillary Xiphopagus among Us) 1984.
