This Paper Surgery Project, it is when we take a magazine page and we crumble it in such a way that it becomes kind of a violent gesture of deconstructive face and deconstruction and what is it about? It is about our deception or kind of a societal deception of beauty when so many people are influenced by, what is beauty supposed to be and so many faces in the magazines, it is basically, they don’t have any character and you know, for me it is about crumbling stuff because it’s actually giving… because you know, I crumble the same over and over and each time they are different. I am giving them character, I am giving them something what basically the soul, what they are suffering, what their pains are, what they experience when they are broken hearted. So I think I am giving them a story, And for quite a while it was… for like two or three years it was on the website without any basically recognition and then Comme De Garcon contacted us and it is kind of from them it started more process of recognition of this series and I see now actually people doing very similar stuff.
I would call… what we are trying to do, what kind of niche we work in, I would call it emotional conceptualism. Because it is still conceptual but we are not abstract artists. We are trying to do stuff… on an emotional level. I think it is important to us. Maybe some pieces do not show this, you know like Paper Surgery but it is about violent assumptions this gesture maybe not so visible, but it is a lot about pain and beauty and the violence and sweetness at the same time.
