After getting her degree in Philosophy from the University of Genova in Italy, Valentina Campora went on to study Modern Theatre Dance at the Academy of Theatre and Dance in Amsterdam. She has danced and collaborated on projects with Jakop Ahlbom, Erik Kaiel, Cristina Planas Leitao, Heather Ware, Bani Koshnoudi, Andy Moor and others.

Co-founder of the Amsterdam-based artist initiative Public Space With a Roof active since 2003, she holds a MS degree in Art, Culture and Technology from the MIT. Hollander’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in the Netherlands and internationally. In her work, she creates site-specific installations as places of exchange which take form of objects and sculptures that can be experienced simultaneously as interiors and exteriors. The source of this interest comes from Hollander’s fascination with the concept of time in the domain of architecture, as well as with the question of how form and structure allow spectators to actively develop the environments they are part of. Her projects are an attempt to embody a certain complexity of sensory experience, as an alternate form of knowledge about the senses and how we ‘read’ the world around us. An aspect of inquiry or doubt is introduced to leave the process of questioning open, and to allow for more questions to enter. More info: website Adi Hollander.

Passepartout Duo is formed by pianist Nicoletta Favari (IT) and percussionist Christopher Salvito (US/IT). Drawing from a carefully selected palette of electro-acoustic textures and shapeshifting rhythms, Passepartout Duo’s work investigates the way in which we listen to and connect with sound. Reassessing the tools they use to create their music, the group is continually developing a specialized and evolving ecosystem of handmade musical instruments that have ranged from analog electronic circuits and conventional percussion, to room-size textile installations and found objects.
Passepartout Duo has been the recipient of dozens of artist residency opportunities around the world including The Watermill Center (US), the Swatch Art Peace Hotel (CN), the Rogers Art Loft (US), and the Embassy of Foreign Artists (CH). Their multidisciplinary approach has also led them to exhibit both their own creations and their collaborations with fellow artists at venues such as Casino Luxembourg (LU), the Nakanojo Biennale (JP), Aarhus Artspace (DK), and Fanrong Museum (CN).
