Colin Guillemet, born Paris, 1979, lives and works in Zurich. His work doesn’t rely on a particular use of media nor on a specific theme. Instead, it is a rumination on the expectations of both artists and viewers of how an artwork should function which he weaves with slapstick, poetics and accusatory non-sense. His work was shown recently in Half Full, Half Empty, Dienstgebaude, Zurich; (An)suite, La Sécu, Lille; Eternal September, Aksioma Institute for Contemporary art and Galerija Skuc, Ljubljana; and Picaresque, Ha Gamle Prestegard, Stavanger, Norway.

Dennis McNulty’s work is generated through an investigation of embodied knowledge in relation to other forms of knowledge, often in the context of the built environment. His works often take hybrid forms, drawing on aspects of cinema, sculpture, sound and performance. Recent solo projects include PROTOTYPES, Limerick City Gallery of Art (2014); A Leisure Complex, Collective, Edinburgh (2104); and The Face of Something New, Scriptings, Berlin (2013). He is currently participating in the residency programme at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

Chris Fite-Wassilak is a writer, critic and curator, a regular contributor to art publications and the author of other writings on dry cleaning, speech bubbles, and abandoned sculpture parks.

Anne Tallentire is an artist who employs concepts such as itinerancy and residue in relation to urban environments. Her work juxtaposes action, objects and image using a range of media such as video, text, sound, performance and photography.

hmn edition 3 will take place Monday September 14th 2015, in a room above a pub near Old Street, participants TBA.
