After Frank and Robbert graduated with a master’s degree in visual arts (Ghent, Belgium, 2012) they have chosen to go through life as the artist duo Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert. This intense collaboration forms the basis for their artistic practice and symbolizes their vision on friendship, collectivity, interplay and knowledge sharing. Seeking the poetical rather than the provocative they create personal works that invite the viewer to take a closer look. Questioning the status of the artist, they continuously develop new methodologies for creating and showing their art. Together, they realise a multidisciplinary body of works, containing objects, prints, installations, videos, actions in public places and cross-over performances on the border between arts and theatre. Trial and error, persistence and humor are key ingredient in their practice.
