ALEXANDROV KLUM

With the world as their working field
 

Artist duo Alexandrov Klum deliberately and playfully illustrates a world in which man and nature face major changes. But their stories are not as the ones we are used to. The merge of award-winning photographer and filmmaker Mattias Alexandrov Klum and conceptual artist Iris Alexandrov Klum, has taken their story telling to new levels. The duo blends their careers and knowledge by joining two different ways of viewing art and images to create unique experiences and try to inspire and make a change.

 

”We want to create art and stories that can be experienced in several layers. Partly what we see and understand, partly what is hidden. We want to show a story beyond the picture, where dreams, mythology and fairy tales may be part of our story.”

Alexandrov Klum’s work can be experienced through photography, films, installations, lectures and performances where they use the whole world as their working field. The duo is currently working with film projects and exhibitions in Africa and Sweden.

”The time we have is now, and it’s scarce. We must do all we can to tell about a world that is so fragile and strong at one and the same time.”
