The Berlin artist duo Various & Gould deals with socially prominent themes such as work, migration, (sexual) identity, death and the current financial crisis, in a playful, intuitive manner. Working in close collaboration since 2005, mutual passions that include their love of paper, enthusiasm for accidental beauty in everday life and art in urban space form the core of their artistic practice. Whilst methods of screenprinting and collage are their speciality, they have recently begun experimenting with public performance and installations.
Testing and experimenting with methods of collaborative printing, was the aim for their residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum. Instead of cutting up finished prints to make a collage, they implemented the collage technique into their printing process. Each image consists of many little parts, alternately printed by the two artists. The result is a series of "collage-prints".
The images are inspired by Belgian architecture, which is not so restricted by building regulations and therefore quite individual.
