Petra Dubach + Mario Van Horrik

From 1993 we are working together as an artistic duo.

The starting point for our artistic work is the notion, that movement and sound are identical; without movement (vibration) nothing can be heard. This idea is worked out by us in every thinkable form: installations, works in progress on location, performances, concerts, etc.

Because of the temporary character of the media sound and movement, our works, up to now, have always been presented during a limited period of time. So there are no objects for sale.

Besides using the media movement, sound and image, we also have an interest in using new media and technology, that are often realized especially for our projects. Recently we are very interested in projects that deal with communication, formal translations, and (mis)understanding.
