reto and markus huber
Upon graduating from the University of Design and Art in Zurich (now ZHdK) in 2005, the twin brothers Markus and Reto Huber (*1975 Münsterlingen), have been working together under the label huber.huber.
Over the past years, huber.huber have attracted attention chiefly with their collages and drawings, but also with sculptural works and installations.
The main themes of their work circle around the ambivalent relation between civilization and nature. huber.huber deal with current social questions. Hope, fears, belief and the failure of humanity become a central topic. Their surprising juxtaposition and their special irony and oddity makes them convincing. In the putative idyll the abyss always lurks.
Huber.Huber's multilayered conceptual works habe been featured in a great many solo and group exhibitions in Switzerland and abroad.
institutional solo exhibitions:
„Vor der Vergangenheit“ (Before the Past) in 2008 at the Kunsthaus Glarus
„I cani non hanno anima“ (Dogs Do Not Have A Soul) in 2009 at the Cantonal Art Museum Lugano
