For Florentine and Alexandre Lamarche-Ovize volumes are articulated in images as evidence, to never return. Drawings and pictures also play with space. For every demonstration and indolent glance is enough: Stomach Love Nightmovi(e)n ... What needs to be understood more necessarily in the work of this artist duo, is the strong force, the violent energy, that emanates, bursts of this art. Concreta. To assemble, to tangle. Deposited on the floor, slices against concrete. To support (with pallets, cabbage, or packaging ...), to find balance, always empirical. Launched in an endless stream, to collect, to create, and to cut, to color. There was this urgency in these works, this stealthy movement as a forward fall. (...)
Florentine and Alexandre are born in 1978 and 1980 and now live and work in Aubervilliers, France. They participated in various recidency programs together, such as in the Camden Art Centre in London, United Kingdom, and the Fine Arts University of Seoul, Korea. They exhibited their work in many galleries in Paris, France, but also in (amongst others) London, Berlin, Milano, and Seoul. They are currently represented by the Luis Adelantado Gallery in Valencia, Spain.
