Since 1997 we are working and living together as an artist couple after having received our degrees from the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts. The main field of our activities focuses on site- and situation specific interventions in the urban fabric of cities around the globe.
Our projects usually start with observations in public space and are elaborated according to the possibilities and requirements on the spot. We are especially interested in the underlying structures and mechanisms of the mere appearance, which we examine by extended research. During the process of developing a specific idea we are looking for the potentials of a location or context and search for the possibilities to relate ourselves to it. In the actual artwork we take position by creating an image or a situation that reflects our personal attitude towards the subject.
The process of planning, implementing and mediating our projects provides us insight into the various areas and communities, which is an important part of our practice. The actual interventions are made for the current moment, for the unknown passersby and the accidental spectator. In our work we try to avoid the superficial gleam of virtuosity. We are the professional beginners, searching for the idea which suggests itself.
