  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

"The uncanny, phantasmagorical quality of Tia Pulitzer’s sculptures is induced by the bewildering fact that they appear as one would expect while at the same time belying any resemblance of reality. The resulting disorientation is in part due to their slightly less than life-size scale, which emphasizes their objectness while provoking an empathetic emotional response to their vulnerable diminutiveness." --Michael Rooks, 2008
