Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs




Lately the two artists renounce the photographic image and concentrate on the concept of objects. Often they set up rules and consider the production of sculpture as a game, passing the ball from one to the other. In Transformer Block the statuette of a Madonna transmogrifies into a gun and then a camera to eventually turn into a religious figure again. The installation Growhomes gathers small houses on stilts with green roofs. Due to the strong plantation lamps the vegetations grew explosively causing the cottages to tumble. The Whole Shebang is set out to be a course in-between impromptu and déjà vu, applying the irony of postmodernism on an exigent practice of sculpture.
