We explore questions concerning youth, love, identity, female desire, and sad flowers. We like drama and to stick our high heels in the dark clay. We are an artist duo: Matilde Søes Rasmussen & Marie Flarup Kristensen.
We both hold a BFA in Fine Art Photography from HDK Valand in Gothenburg, Sweden. During the past 2 years we have as a duo had two solo shows, participated in a group show and published 3 zines. We work with photo, video, writing, installation, performance. Our work is the offspring of an often non-verbal artistic collaboration, where care, trust, and an interest in mysterious female existences are all elements.
In our recent project “The Lookout” we went on a hiking trip to discover how close photographic collaboration might look: dressing up as each other, mimicking each other’s poses, and even remixing our facial features in post-production. It became a fanzine and a video work. The work is the offspring of our nonverbal artistic collaboration, where color, experimentation and trust are all important elements. The zine was produced for a group exhibition at Volkano in Gothenburg and was later showcased at a self- publication event at NEJD in Gothenburg.
Our collaboration allows us to go places we never could have walked alone. Through a playful and intuitive way of experimenting, we explore both ourselves and each other. From the out and the inside. Eyes tend to be like mirrors and I see your every move.
