Art duo Anne and Patrick Poirier had been living their birthrights as creatives for 50 years now, their love for mixed media and photography leading them to some of the most unthinkable experiments.
The duo began their collaboration in 1967, with photography as one of their central media. Most of their works are anchored in the tragedy of World War II, their acute and profound consciousness of fragility of everything. Adolescent Patrick fell in love with photography with his mother's Kodak 6 x 4, and the two artists went to École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris for their art studies.
Like their sculptures and architectural models of archaeological sites, the duo's images emphasize on the fragility of memory and their necessity to bear witness in the forms of photograms -- broken glasses, flowers, skulls.
