Biography

The artist duo bn+BRINANOVARA is like an ecosystem and embraces a cross-disciplinary practice. Their research deepens among and ironically challenges cultural archetypes, in favour of the multiform image of the Real. The image happens as a kind of falling in love and, thereby, it becomes a fertile inquiry land for the public too. Every day Giorgio and Simone try to overcome their personal imposition for a condition of freedom. Neither mine nor yours: a kind of intimate activism for forgotten causes.
