Marie Flarup Kristensen and Matilde Søes Rasmussen work as an artist duo with photography, video, writing and performance. Their work is the offspring of an artistic collaboration where care, trust, and an interest in mythic female existences are all elements. They like drama and they like to stick their high heels into the dark mud!
They both hold a BFA in Fine Art Photography from HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design in Gothenburg, Sweden. Together they have created two duo exhibitions in Gallery Entrance and Room 2012 in Gothenburg, while having participated in group shows in Vulkano Gothenburg and NEJD Gallery. In 2020 they self-published the zine The Lookout, shot a commision for Swedish Art magazine Period Zine, and participated in Landskrona Photo Festival. Marie has spent the past year working as the personal assistant of french artist Pauline Curnier Jardin, and Matilde has published her debut book of text and photography with Disko Bay Books. From April to July 2021 they have been in residence as a duo at GlogauAiR in Berlin.
During their residency at AiR351 they will continue their practice of photographing, filming and writing about each other, exploring the power positioning of being both the active and passive part of a model/photographer relationship.
