Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel are working together since 1997. Within their oeuvre, which has emerged over the past few years, they deal with traditional, handcrafted techniques in addition to their interest in classical sculpture. The artists are always concerned with manufacturing processes originating in different crafts, but that have become less and less visible in the course of technical automation. Dewar and Gicquel taught themselves various skills that are considered traditional, but do not necessarily employ the original techniques of the craft in the artistic production of their various works. In lengthy and complex stages, over recent years they have produced works in clay, high-fired ceramics, carved stone, wood and woven or embroidered textile.
On the occasion of their recent exhibition at Portikus, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel will deliver a lecture at Städelschule. Rather than presenting work, the artists will talk about the production process of individual pieces and site specific commissions.
Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
