This catalogue presents an overview of the duo's projects in the last years, unfolding a personal universe bringing forward nature as a space for political expression. It is structured through a conversation between the artists and Juan Canela, including diverse graphic material and several specific extrapolations written by critics and curators.
Published following the eponymous exhibition at the CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid, from June 8 to August 8, 2018.
