Paris, Galerie Jerome de Noirmont

Former paintings by the American duo reference the 1950s and 60s era however, in What You MEAN TO ME, they return to the source of their image inspiration by evoking the cinemagraphic image of the pre-pop era. “Mean to Me, 1936” is their first film, that is 13 minutes long and stars British model Agyness Deyn and American Linus Roache who are highly styled from the era. It depicts a tragic love story in Manhattan during the Depression; the vulnerable woman becomes strong woman in her extreme sentiments and refined glamour.

This new work, influenced by directors Fritz Lang and Alfred Hitchcock, inspired evolutions in their works on paper, in which they integrate stills from the film. They have also integrated into their practice the 1930s photographic process, the Carbro 3 color print.
