Who are Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert?
Since 2007, Robbert Goyvaerts and Frank Merkx work together as the artist duo Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank.
R&F F&R construct a multiform oeuvre of visual arts, video arts, theater and performance.
They are two of the founding members of the international video arts collective PORT ACTIF and make theater shows in collaboration with CAMPO Victoria since 2012.
They live and work in Ghent, Belgium.
GUNS & BANZAI
Their first publication 'GUNS' is an art catalogue documenting the 400 wooden fire arms they made during a one month study of the form and symbol of a gun. The book and some of the wooden gun sculptures will be at show in WING.
Beside the presentation of existing work R&F F&R will present the very first output of their new public space experiment called ‘BANZAI’. They consist of small wooden suitcases with hand luggage dimensions transforming into performative installations creating different images or spontaneous actions in streets, homes and natural sites of Hong Kong and China. Every suitcase has a different content and goal. Some are conceived as small installations or sculptures while others are rather conceptual and spiritual in nature dealing with mantras and viewers interaction.
