Eva and Adele

The self proclaimed "Hermaphrodite Twins from the Future", EVA & ADELE, have become celebrities as "living art" and have carried on making art together and being art together since their official wedding ceremony in 1991. Achieving international recognition and acclaim, the Artists appear at museum openings and major art expositions arrayed in identical dazzling feminine costumes, shaved heads and glittering make-up, fusing together art and life and challenging our ideas about art, gender and sexual identity. With a powerful and confrontational message, EVA & ADELE defy the conventional description of what an artist is. EVA & ADELE are, quite simply, living icons of contemporary art. Raising profound social and philosophical questions, the Artists touch on contemporary issues and anxieties ranging from role-playing, narcissism and logo obsession to the relevance of history and the nature of linear time. As the mentors of artists yet to come, what matters to EVA & ADELE is not only the work of art itself but the very notion of art. The idea that "art is life and life is art" is what guides them in their constant effort to free themselves from pre-established paradigms and to create truly revolutionary art.
