Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel


    Daniel Dewar (b. 1976, Forest of Dean, UK) currently lives and works in Brussels.
    Grégory Gicquel (1975, Saint-Brieuc, France) currently lives and works in Plévenon.

    Dewar & Gicquel have been working as an artist duo since 1998. For over twenty years Dewar and Gicquel have explored and experimented with craft techniques, materials, and both modern and traditional tools in an ongoing foray into the artist’s and – more generally – humankind’s relationship to labour and production. Each new work is created at the hands of the duo themselves after labour-intensive and empirical periods of trial, error, fecund failures, and meaningful surprises. In addition to their singular approach to materials and processes, Dewar and Gicquel combine their media with a menagerie of incongruous motifs, their practice uses these symbols and archetypes both as a motivation and as an augury of their elaborate personal philosophy.

    They have been the subject of solo exhibitions at reputable institutions, galleries and fairs, including Jan Kaps, Cologne, Germany (upcoming); Culturgest, Lisbon, Portugal (2022); Mendes Wood DM, São Paulo, Portugal (2022); MACRO – Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, Italy (2021); Van Buuren Museum & Gardens, Brussels, Belgium (2020); Biennale de Lyon, Musée d’Art Contemporain, France (2019); Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland (2019); Clearing, (Beverly Hills, US, 2021; Brussels, Belgium, 2020; New York, US, 2018); Portikus, Frankfurt, Germany (2017); Witte de With, Rotterdam, The Netherlands (2017), Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2013) and among others.
