Breaking the boundaries that space draws and reaching past the limits that human
contact creates while still staying true to beauty. This is what we explore daily to address
the issues of limits and borders.
Many figures from different art forms have accompanied us on this journey. The
properties of spaces trying to be perfect, 'The Prigioni' (Prisons) by Michelangelo where
we see the concept of bodies trapped in marble for eternity unable to escape what they
are, and especially the photography of Robert Mapplethorpe who continually strived to
capture the beauty in statuesque bodies.
Works from different periods and languages pose the main question we try to answer with
our work: How can we challenge preconceived beauty?
Which movement can free us from the prisons Michelangelo created for us and once we
are free, how can we convey the message to others through body language and
A constantly evolving artwork where to start anew, one must not treat limits as a
destination but as a point of departure
