Since 2006 the German-Welsh couple Manon Awst and Benjamin Walther have lived and worked in Berlin and Wales. In their work they examine questions of human existence and discuss behavioural standards and social values. The main subject of their artistic interest is space. And this is where they combine different materials like gelatine or ice as well as light to create visual metaphors.
In 2009 their works were presented at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and their biggest sculpture until now, entitled Work in Progress, was installed at the German embassy in London. Manon Awst and Benjamin Walther are represented by the London gallery Hannah Barry.
Between January and March 2010 Manon Awst and Benjamin Walther were, at the invitation of the Goethe-Institut Prague, Artists in Residence at Prague’s MeetFactory. On April 2nd a vernissage was held showcasing the works created during their stay in the city.
