Daniel Dewar (* 1976) and Grégory Gicquel (* 1975), a British-French artist duo, create extraordinary sculptural objects that combine traditional craftwork, figurative motifs, and wildly surreal sensibility.

About

Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel create sculptural objects that combine traditional craftwork, figurative motifs, and a wildly surreal sensibility. For their first institutional exhibition in Switzerland, the British-French artist duo presents an ensemble of newly commissioned and recently constructed wood pieces in which the fragmented bodies of humans and other mammals appear. Using seemingly anachronistic production techniques, they carve a dislocated human arm or intestinal tract alongside an ox’s head or a giant Flanders rabbit onto wall murals, armoires, or sets of drawers. The results celebrate the slow and the analogue, rendering vague any distinctions between functionality, decoration, and aura.
