Artist Statement
Our interests are in the repetitions of forms in nature and culture, in their varying modifications and different scales. We record our observations with photography and abstract drawings, placing them in reference to our objects in order to generate new meanings. We create juxtapositions of form and inherent content that make the differences and similarities of objects clearer by contrast. Together our objects, drawings and photography form fragmentary installations — associative systems of mutual purchases, which continuously adapt themselves.
