AMARAL & BARTHES

S'il vous plaît... Dessine moi un oeuf !

France

2017 - Jury

This series, made of pictures and videos, is a playful invitation to dive into art history through the parody of some of the significant artists whose artwork were controversial. The egg being an everyday element as well as a basic piece of food, it is systematically used here in an ironic way to caricature and underline each artists’ specific language.

About the artist

Both Audrey Barthes and Michel Amaral are self-taught artists. After working for 15 years in industry, they decided to focus on their art in 2013, when they started working together by chance, in the « bright, blue room » of a hospital. Right from 2014, their artworks have been selected in numerous national and international photo, video and contemporary art festivals.
