Mountaincutters

Mountaincutters are an artists’ duo composed by a man and woman. They address their artistic practice to the concept of development and life cycle of the artwork; they present the works in an ongoing transformation where the artists perform the role of creator, questioning the origin of the works, meanwhile leaving a sense of uncertainty about their future. The artists use natural materials like wood, rock, ground, concrete and metal, in order to confer to the artworks a sense of inescapable decay and fragility, characterizing our world. The artists operate with site-specific interventions, creating the work in the exhibition space, turning the white cube into a production workshop.

Born in Marseille in 1990. They graduated with honors from École Supérieure d’Art et de Design Marseille-Méditerranée in 2014.
