Info on participants:

Olivier Castel is an artist based in London. He usually presents work under heteronyms and has created over thirty different identities since 2001. Often using ephemeral or temporal forms he works primarily with projections, reflective surfaces, light, text and audio.

Josie Cockram is an artist based in Devon. She makes work with photographic print, moving image, sculpture and sound that embraces the peripheral and the incoherent. Works begin as recordings but there is slippage between imageness, objectness, sound and space that disrupts the language of documentation. She is co-founder of Aller Park Studios.

Hannah Dargavel-Leafe is an artist based in London. Recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition at CAVE Gallery, Leeds (2018) and performances at the Whitechapel Gallery and IKLEKTIC, London. Releases include a cassette on Sacred Tapes and a vinyl out on Calling Cards Publishing.

Mary Hurrell is an interdisciplinary artist who works across performance, sound and sculpture. She explores forms of language and movement in relation to physical and psychological states. Recent works include Movement Study 6 (Maxxinna), The Bower, London (2018), and ちょう¬, Yamakiwa Gallery, Japan (2018).

hmn edition 17 will take place in summer 2019.
