Live and work in Barcelona, Spain
Lolo & Sosaku investigate the possibilities of sculpture as an expanded field. The nexus that unites their work is the quest for an object in contact with its surroundings and with the spectator, an object that seeks friction and tension, exploring the capacity of creating new meanings.
Their work moves between different artistic languages such as sculpture, installation, kinetic art and painting, often incorporating music and sound. Its modus operandi is to constitute itself as a subject and to reach from its machinic materiality to transcendence, to mysticism and to the unknown.
Electronic music is certainly the highlight of their inspiration as a complex language translated into sound installations and sculptural compositions. Shapes, lines, materials and sounds are assembled together into motion sculptures that perform taking their own voice in an unpredictable continuous transformation. Exploring many artistic horizons and redefining boundaries, their interest is the energy and the hidden forces that guide life in our technological age.
