This atypical couple, self-proclaimed as The Hermaphrodite Twins in Art, is symbolic of art today. In mixing the sexual signs, EVA & ADELE are committed to going over the boundaries of gender. “We want to show that sex is not an issue as simple as the difference between black and white. Our appearance is abstract: we’re dressed like women and our heads are pretty masculine”.
EVA & ADELE attend all the exhibition openings, every place that they consider as “base for representation”. They always wear identical, surprising, ultra-feminine outfits, are made up with glitter and have their heads shaven like men, so they never pass unnoticed and create “an event within the event”.
Wherever we are is museum: EVA & ADELE believe that art is not confined to the usual places in which it is exhibited, such as museums, galleries and arts centres. “We have decided to become art in life, to leave the museum and to go out towards the public”.
They see everything they do as a work of art: their outfits, their pink motor home bearing their logo, their performances... EVA & ADELE don’t see any distinction between art and life, this being the guiding principle that determines the artistic coherence and uniqueness of their works.
Their tangible work is no less surprising, mixing traditional media and materials (oil on canvas, pastel, watercolour, pencil on paper…) with their singular attitude and identity. Their self-portraits are the starting point of all their works, which the couple produce from visual archives of their appearances in the art world or in their daily lives, combined with a variety of drawings and patterns.
