Idiots

October 21, 2013


We don't think these Dutch artists are Idiots, this is actually their name. In fact, they are far from Idiots, as we are finding some of their works to be quite fantastic metaphors and interpretations of common knowledge. 

Here is the Idiot bio: "The artistic partnership of Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker, who collectively are better known as Idiots, present us with a unique body of work, characterized by the use of animal material exquisitely sculpted into natural positions and combined seamlessly with rich materials such as embroidery and pearls. A contemporary touch is given to the classical memento mori concept, questioning the world’s current trend in over glorification through marketing. In a constantly twisting play between fantasy and reality, Idiots tell us about important themes such as life, death, beauty and restriction." via
