Who are you?
How do you define your individuality?
Through our artworks we aim to examine exactly this
…and we invite you to do the same.
Diplotreia : The Pantheon of Duality (2023)
The works within this series explore the intricate world of human identity by drawing inspiration from Carl Jung’s theory of archetypes and the psychology of daily roles.
We draw parallels between Jung’s archetypes and the mythological pantheon of ancient Greece, where deities, heroes and beasts, personify various aspects of human experience and behaviour.
We invite the viewer to reflect on the multifaceted nature of human existence, challenging traditional notions of a singular identity.
Who do you become and how does that change at different stages of your life?
Who are we?
How do we define our individuality?
Do we change this definition based on the social situations we find ourselves in?
We have been collaboratively creating artwork for more than 20 years and have ourselves, long been fascinated by the general fascination with twins; the mythology surrounding twins, the psychoanalytical studies of twins, and the associated notions of harmony and duality.
Our work pays particular focus to what it is to be an identical being – to in an essence share an identity with your double. We aim to take advantage of the visual power – the awkwardness, the lack of fit and belonging, the freakish feel – of the twin motif. Within the performative element of our self portraits we illustrate the relevance of this evocative subject, in the context of a culture still fixated on The Individual.
