Aziz + Cucher are currently exhibiting as part of a solo exhibition entitled Time of the Empress at Gazelli Art House in London. The exhibition is a major exhibition of new photography and animations made by the artistic duo Aziz + Cucher who have been life partners and collaborators since 1992.
The works in the exhibition will focus on their continued interest in representing the landscape through a stylised visual vocabulary that is lyrical, meditational and at times foreboding.
The exhibition will include a new installation of Time of the Empress from their critically acclaimed Some People, an exhibition of four complex video installations that attempts to wrestle with the underlying madness of everyday life amidst political turmoil throughout the Middle East. Focusing largely on the strain between society’s aspiration for progress and the cyclical nature of history, the works in Some People show the stark contrast between things feeling as if they are progressing and knowing that they are always staying the same.
