Kristo&Kristo_.jpg

Artist couple living on Earth, The Solar System, The Milky Way, Local Group, Virgo Super-Cluster, Known Universe and working primarily in Antwerp, Belgium, European Union.

 

Some of their works are rooted in primordial, archetypal & dystopian narratives, and expanded towards an investigation of humans' relationship with space, time and self. Others amass to more absurdist, misleadingly lighthearted embodiments of variations on the same themes. 

  

Not fond of compliance and canon, Kristo&Kristo's visual language and choice of mediums, materials and techniques is eclectic and favors the ignoble. 

  

Recent honours of their work include: participation in the group show 'Hors Commerce is ook commerce', Gallery Ronny Van de Velde, Knokke-Zoute (2019), an extended solo exhibition of ‘the lamentation over the Solar Child’ in the revered Saint Paul’s Church in Antwerp during the cultural festival 'Antwerp Baroque. Rubens Inspires' (2018-2019, still on view), the acquisition of ‘the resurrection of Antigoon’ by Port of Antwerp as the first artwork to permanently accompany the new Port House by Zaha Hadid (2017) and an extended solo exhibition of ‘E.A.D 97K’ in dialogue with the iconic Pieter Breugel the Elder’s ‘Dulle Griet’ in the closed collection of the Mayer van den Bergh Museum (2016).
