PTV: Performance TV
- They are superheroes of art and culture – the artistic duo of Maria Toboła – a visual artist, sculptor and performance artist, and Maria Magdalena Kozłowska – a voice performance artist, singer and director, who have been working together since 2015. They primarily produce an online variety show filled with sketches, songs and guest appearances by other artists. They make essays at the intersection of video art, theatre and performance art on specific issues, such as death, respect, the creative process and money. Their work is founded on repetition: both the Marias, who share a physical similarity, speak in unison, in the quaintly old-fashioned manner of 1970s heart-throbs. Monkeys’ other personas present them as tricksters, TV programme hosts, detectives, gurus and hooligans. Their adventures have been presented by the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, the Zona Sztuki Aktualnej in Szczecin and the Bęc Zmiana Foundation

East London Cable (ELC)
- ELC is an artist collective that researches the intersection between contemporary art and television, and produces works that can manifest as either of them.ELC is Aoibheann Greenan, Dan Meththananda, Florence Peake, Jos Bitelli, Sung Tieu and Wojciech Kosma—a configuration that will welcome new friends, advisers and collaborators. Having previously worked in TV as makers, performers, advisors or writers, we would like now to collectivise and formalise our efforts as a part-creative agency, part-artistic practice.
