23.—24. april

Martinka and Oscar Bobrikova & de Carmen

Adressen til Martinka and Oscar sitt atelier er Olaf Ryes Plass 2, 0552 Oslo
Atelieret er åpent lørdag 23. april

We are Martinka Bobrikova and Oscar de Carmen, a Slovakian/ Spanish artist-duo based in Oslo, working together since 2005 under the name Bobrikova & de Carmen with exhibition practices and career strategies of self-curating, self-organizing, self-publishing and self-(re)presentation.
The most recent years our artistic practice have been based on the discourse between the human and the social. We use art and the creativity as a tool to activation cultural dynamics that facilitate and/or combine education, communication, and processes of urban and social transformation.
We both graduated from Malmo Art Academy with Master in Fine Arts in 2012.
