About The Artists

Visionary, nerd and all-around nice guy, Artist Tom Estes has had his work hung, played and performed in a few of the world’s right places and a couple of deliciously wrong ones. Estes considers himself a carnival sideshow conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach. His performance work for Ultraviolet Sun, entitled ‘The Ideal Robot Home Show’ incorporates the use of biomorphic robotics. The work is a kind of thought experiment in which consumer technologies and Science Fiction merge and mingle in an ever-expanding field of social, political and economic

Performance at Ultraviolet Sun is where heightened fascination begins. Operating between reality and fiction, the performance work of Riffat Ahmed (aka Riffy Powerz) embodies the disconnection that occurs between two worlds. A curator, film-maker and artist, Ahmed’s perfomance work brings filmic devices into an immediate interactive reality.You can read more about her in this


interview for her project at the Saatchi Gallery.

If you haven’t heard of Vanya Balogh by now you probably should have. In recent years this boy has sent some serious shock waves through the London art scene. His curation, an integral part of his creative output, is defined by high intensity, large scale events and he was recently listed as one of the Artlyst Power 100. Balogh has exhibited widely and worked as a contributor with cult street style magazine I-D for over a decade. His commercially acclaimed photographic imaging will be at Ultraviolet Sun.

The work of Sonic Artist, Sarah Gavin, is an exploration of how sound can be sculptural. Portraying abstractions of the real, the mesmerizing, experimental and innovative ‘Table Score’ for Ultraviolet Sun is influenced by the rules of cymatics and ontological theories of existence.

BBKP is a group of artists comprising Nicholas Brown, Nathan Birchenough, Craig Kao and Savvas Papasavva. From various backgrounds, they deliberately lose their individual identities in a many-pronged practice that incorporates wit and humor.

Old Master of New Media, American avant-garde artist, writer and performer Barbara Rosenthal. As well as her own significant body of work, from 1976-1996, she was the principal female actor in Super-8 films by Bill Creston, seven of which were screened at The Museum of Modern Art. For Ultraviolet Sun she will present her performance “Existential Ultra-Light Photo Run”
