Mathias & Mathias
Mathias Toubro, b. 1986, DK  
Mathias Dyhr, b. 1991, DK
Both live and work in Copenhagen, Denmark

 

Mathias & Mathias is an artists duo group consisting of Mathias Dyhr and Mathias Toubro, collaborating closely since 2012. Mathias & Mathias functions an as umbrella under which the two artists shield themselves from the grand artist subject, in the process of becoming more headless then two heads thinking alike. Working in various medias, from sculpture over social installations, text based work, to-more recently- film. The duo often borrows themes and motifs from art history, artistic labor and ditto narratives- not strangers to scenes from the 'Theatre of the Absurd'.
