WHO ARE ABBY DOUBLE?
Abby Double is a duo of two French artists named Brice and Regis Abby. They are twin brothers. The tandem takes its inspiration from the double notion that they have made their own. They question the idea of duality which is hidden in every human being. Their work, which is based on romantic conceptional esthetics, is articulated around the different aspects of the double notion.
As the French philosopher Clément Rosset puts it, the double is the major symptom of the denial of reality but also the warrant of authenticity. The duo focuses on this ambiguity by using fugitive impressions (shadow, reflection, echo). The apparent rationalism of this artistic demonstration hides a contradiction as their creations keep being haunted by the impossibility of leading a true double existence. Beyond this phenomenon, these artists pay attention to duplication mechanisms from a technical standpoint by studying the concept of false pretense by different means of creation.
Their apparent likeness is used as a medium to emphasize the suffering engendered by an intricate identity. This identity is shown in the setting of filmic duels where emphasis is laid on their singular complicity. These creations are similar to a dance of Death. They are the echo effect of an existence which ineluctably cannot end simultaneously.
Brice and Regis were born in 1981 in Tours, France. They currently live and work in Paris.
