Multi-layered, interwoven, constructed, worn down, humorous, sometimes irritating and unsettling, sleek, and often massive. These are only a few of the possible ways of capturing the work of Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel in words, after their twenty years together as an artistic duo. This monograph looks back, and at the same time takes stock of what is situated in the present. It is a chronological inventory of the oeuvre and thus reveals its development, showing how the work has changed over two decades. The idea for this book first arose in a conversation with the artists when preparing an exhibition at Portikus in 2017. It was made possible through a collaboration with several additional art institutions, where the artists had solo exhibitions in 2016, 2017, and 2019 respectively.
