For the AKAA fair in Paris, the duo will present a project comprising objects and paintings inspired by the writing of one of Parisien? art history’s most famous multi-culturalists Gertrude Stein:
“The care with which there is incredible justice and likeness, all this makes a magnificent asparagus, and also a fountain.”
Stein’s artistic vision is a touch-stone for an ability to reveal the truth of things, by breaking down conventional descriptions and prescriptions. In the same fashion, in their AKAA project Duck & Rabbit will immerse audiences in a re-orienting experience, which brings out the humanity of every person, beyond the social, political, racial and cultural boxes that we use as a convenient yet outmoded default.
