That Sex Thing brings together four artists working with sexuality in our daily lives. Finnish artist, Niina Lehtonen Braun continues her ongoing “Mother Said” collage series by exploring the sex advice and cultural sayings about sex that Mothers have bestowed upon their children. The mixed medium work of Rebecca Loyche deals with how sexuality is sometimes portrayed, reflected or ignored. Conceptual photographer, Ingrid Roe personifies how books that have affected our personal development can show a subtle intimacy in being simply the objects that they are. New York City based writer and painter Sally Eckhoff is obsessed with her horse and walks the line between the love of an animal and the speculative sexual nature of this relationship. 


Niina Lehtonen Braun (b. 1975) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki in 2000 and has been living in Berlin since that. In addition to collages, her artistic work includes paintings, installations and performances. Lehtonen Braun is a founding member of the performance group JOKAklubi (FI/DE), and she regularly works in cooperation with the performance group Sabotanic Garden (FI/CZ). Lehtonen Braun has published two art books; "Mother Said" (Kerber Verlag, 2013) and "These
Foolish Things Remind Me Of You" (Kerber Verlag, 2016).

Rebecca Loyche is a conceptual feminist artist working primarily in video, photography, installation and sound. She is interested in making work that questions and readdresses everyday perception. Working with different mediums she examines the relationships of power dynamics, the language of communication and the effects of creating environments. Her artwork has been shown with great international breadth. She also directed the art spaces MMX Open Art Venue, Co-Verlag and re:MMX in Berlin, Germany. She holds a MFA from Hunter College, a BFA from Pratt Institute and received a Meisterschüler with Candice Breitz at the Braunschweig School of Art, Germany.

Ingrid Roe’s photographic works play with the idea of history as conditional reality and examines power dynamics in political and social realms. In her approach she rejects
grand social statements and instead looks at the details that can allow for new perspectives on any given reality. Ingrid’s media has included light works, photography, watercolor &amp; video. Her most recent projects included a book cover design for a group of philosophers in Tokyo and a runway show collaboration with a New York fashion designer. This Fall Ingrid has co-curated a large group show for Openings Collective. She holds an MFA in photography and a BFA in studio arts from Hunter College,
AAS in studio arts from FIT, and completed an apprenticeship as a Layout designer in Germany. Roe lives and works in New York.

When Sally Eckhoff says she’s from Long Island, she means that her inner landscape looks like a laurel thicket, sounds like the waves on a beach, and smells like car exhaust. Her fantasyland is only an hour away from New York City. Eckhoff, who is both writer and painter, has published hundreds of pieces of written work in a variety of media and shown her visual art in New York, Philadelphia, Amsterdam, Bologna, and other cities around the world. Her 2013 memoir F*ck Art (Let’s Dance) chronicles ten of her seventeen years living and painting Manhattan’s East Village. Now she lives both in Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley, and likes to get outdoors to ride, care for, and clean up after a superlative horse named Spot. Sally also makes short videos consisting of music and drawings. She has been a resident at the BAU (Building Architecture and Urbanism) program in Otranto and Spongano, Italy, and has attended the American Academy in Rome as a visiting scholar. Her upcoming book is a story of an artist’s life in a rural setting, and tells the story of how animals help people process their own experiences. How Horses Get Their Names will be published by Water Street Press in 2018.
