ASSUME VIVID ASTRO FOCUS: BONA TO VADA YOUR DOLLY BOLD EEK
Christophe Hamaide-Pierson and Eli Sudbrack have worked under the alias avaf since the early 2000’s, oscillating between collaboration and their autonomous production. This show celebrates the duos’ first joint exhibition in six years, where each work presented results from their interwoven studio practises. In fact, through the rigorous use of the pseudonym, avaf challenges the notion of authorship in their work. The immersive quality of avaf’s installations encourages the viewer to become actively engaged with their surroundings, thus assuming personal ownership over the experience of the work.
