Sissu Tarka is an artist and researcher with an interest in the criticality of emerging practices and economies of art. Recent explorations include themes such as revolution, ornamental structures, and the potential of conviviality inherent to exchanging and transferring thought. Tarka was born in Helsinki and currently lives in London. After completing a PhD in Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins London, she joined CRUMB web resource for new media art curators. When not with CRUMB she collaborates with Colm Lally (E:ventGallery London) to explore event structures, dialogical forms, agency and artistic intervention in contemporary practices.
Mare Tralla [aka Disgusting Girl] is an Estonian-born media artist and organiser who currently lives and works in London. Currently she is a phD student at University of Westminster researching cyberfeminist art practices in Eastern-Europe in 1990s and how participation in international networks (like Faces) has influenced local practices. In Estonia she is notoriously known as feminist artist, starting with co-organising first Estonian feminist art project ‘Est.Fem’ in 1995, she became widely known in Estonian mainstream media as 'revolting female'. Her often self-ironic art questions the place and the role of women in our societies and how women from Eastern Europe are perceived or seen as in the Western world.

I am interested in the geographies of surveillance and the body. My work moves from the directly "say it as it is" biographical to the layering of fictional biographies onto the city, the gallery and the virtual.
Coming from initial studies in sculpture and printmaking I have been making work in various forms for some time starting off with political poster, sticker making and super 8 film making in the 1980's and moving to new media and video in 1988. You can see more of my solo projects at www.fabyc.co.uk.
I am very interested in the mother/daughter relationship and have made a lot of work that engages both with my relationship with my long dead mother and that of being a mother.
