Carine & Elisabeth Krecké

 

Carine and Elisabeth realize many of their artistic and scientific projects together, focusing on their interdisciplinary complementarities. Their artistic work questions the relation between drawing and photography. Their actual series of “fictitious photographs” and “filmstills from non-existing movies” consist in simulating photography in a hybrid and multi-faceted process combining pencil drawing and digital technology of image manipulation. Part of this work, thematically related to the iconography of the film noir, has been shown among others in the Casino-Luxembourg (Forum of contemporary art) in 2003.
