Photographed using a decisive and bold aesthetic strategy, the industry of the global arms trade comes across as banal and even humorous, yet this series of images contains a more sinister undertone suggested by deliberately obscuring any identifiable actors – often literally by the weaponry itself. The anonymity, privatisation and corruption of this industry is underlined by this simple yet effective and consistent aesthetic gesture, which is what makes this work so appealing. Judge Max Pinckers, on Nikita Teryoshin’s Nothing Personal

By deconstructing and rebuilding her past, using the fragments from her own archive of macabre paintings, performance, intervention, installation, psychology, sci-fi, ero-guro and witchcraft she rejects her own childhood and upbringing. Ambrossio reconstructs her personal history, almost as a therapeutic act in order to have the freedom to exercise the power of her own imagination. Judge Louise Fedotov-Clements, on Liza Ambrossio’s The Rage of Devotion
