French and Australian artist, born in Paris 1945, Knighted in 2000 “Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres”, International Deputy of the French Visual Artists Union, Honorary President of Artists in Nature International Network.
Initially, his sculptures, paintings, engravings, artist books, were presented in salons, art fairs and museums, in France and abroad. 3 galleries in Paris and New York State presented his pieces in personal and collective shows, including FIAC Paris.
Since 1991, Francois Davin restricted his creation to site-specific art. For him, it means a succession of “acts of art” in a dialogue with the places for which he creates. He believes that these acts, sort of ceremonies, can help reveal, balance, heal (?), those places. The images that remain are merely traces, permanent or ephemeral, of these ceremonies. Often, his images ‘rediscover’; lost or potential myths: he calls that ‘Mythical Archeology’. He invites the inhabitants of the sites to share his acts of art.
He has created more than 120 large scale site-specific pieces on the 5 continents.

During the past decade as a professional artist he has exhibited more than 100 projects, in +20 countries and on 4 continents. His practice draws knowledge from various fields and marries them in order to find solutions to contemporary problems. Architecture, carpentry, botany, cooking, electronics, chemistry, new-media, and more are all merged under a singular umbrella of artistic production. Tate is occasionally a curator, author, social designer as well as a frequent workshop facilitator focusing on utilization of available materials, tools and site specificity.
Silvina Soria’s search for subtlety in sculpture has led her to work using steel rods, wire and threads, each of which allows for different approaches to construction and ways of thinking about volume, space and site specificity. Referencing subterranean systems and maps, the artist builds complex structures that emerge from a nucleus and expand centrifugally as a rhizome. The physicality of her three dimensional drawings generates projections and shadows that add a further experimental dimension to the work.
Silvina received her first degree in Sculpture, Sculpture Professorship and Arts Education from the School of Visual Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredon, Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2003. She subsequently completed her postgraduate studies in Contemporary Sculpture in 2004.
Since 2003, the artist has been dedicated to her studio practice of sculpture and sculptural jewellery in conjunction with her teaching career. In 2009, after participating in an artist’s residency at Cite Culture, Paris, Silvina moved to London where she lived until December 2018. She has recently moved to Valencia.
From 2011 until 2017 she ran ForumArts, an Arts Organisation that delivered opportunities and support to artists including two Sculpture Symposiums in England.
Silvina was shortlisted for the Via Arts Prize and exhibited at the Brazilian Embassy (London, 2017). Silvina has exhibited across the UK, at London venues including Collier Bristow Gallery (2017); Jealous Gallery (2016); Central Space Gallery (2015) and the National Theatre (2015) and at Oxford Brookes University (Oxford, 2015); William Bennington Gallery Sculpture Park, Coombe Trenchard (Devon, 2015).

Helga has got an MA of cultural study; in my case visual anthropology (Rijeka 2015, www.ffri.uniri.hr, plus Media arts and practices attended on Apuri.hr 2014, plus Croatian language two years, long time ago). In themes like Enclave offers, 20 years ago my interest provoked my first step as technical assistant in local fine arts continuous – workshop for cultural landscape. That interest was prolonged on fifteen years long’s period – in more innovative- urban culture projects with neighborhood community, and in recycled old factory for youth club activities. I liked to be occupied with projects formulated as collective creativity process, educative too, in giving new imaginative (collage and story) perspective of older/actual socio-city views.
I continued with free expressions activities in different regions of Croatia, explained as People’s private touristic catalogues. Then, I decided to rest a little from ‘full time inventions job’, so with taking rest in benches in five years I . For one born and stayed on specific Adriatic coast, in 1976, that is for now nice collection, still surprising me; besides newly assistance in international ethnographical project of a historian, or animating in museums or galleries there is lot experiences in ‘partisan’ voluntary team work, as part of organising volunteers & activities team, or as an (co)author of creative workshops, exhibitions, and pro-educational public happening /some strongly dedicated also to people with disability/ basically ngo Spirit www.spirit-ri.hr and www.poriluk.com- archive.
Artist from the Fine Arts and Design School of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, where she has been taught for six consecutive years. She has also taught workshops and subjects in different institutions such as the National Superior Autonomous School of Fine Arts of Peru.
Her sculptural work is made with natural materials that she gathers from walks, looking for communication with the inhabitants of the communities of those places, from whom she learns the traditional techniques and the symbolic relationship that they give to Nature. Predominately woven works with vegetal fibers, stones, wood, beeswax and craft paper, as well as interventions in the natural landscape. Drawing is paramount in her creative process and forms an essential part of her projects; recently she has begun to investigate new digital media, without neglecting her topics of interest: landscape and nature.
Her research in the artistic field shows great interest in rescuing traditional artistic techniques from pre-Columbian Peruvian cultures, which is reflected both in her work and in workshops held in the Amazon, with which she seeks to engage in a technical, artistic and cultural exchange among the participants. She seeks to maintain a close relationship with urban and natural landscapes, consecuently, she has participated in collaborative projects such as the Memory Sanctuary La Hoyada with SHICRAS Architects and is part of the Interdisciplinary Research Group EMPLAZAR: Space + Art + Public. She has participated in different group exhibitions and had her first solo exhibition in 2015. She has been chosen to participate in artistic residencies in Spain and Italy, keeping in line with her artistic proposals in relation to the natural landscape. In 2018, she graduated with a Master’s Degree in Artistic Production from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, Majoring in Public Art with a focus on Contemporary Thought and Landscape and Nature.
