Fantich & Young

Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young are East London based artists and have been working together as Fantich & Young since 2008.

Fantich & Young's body of work entails a conceptual and aesthetical approach to the sculptural juxtaposition of symbolic ready-made materials. Their work addresses parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world: Nature as model or nature as threat.

Fantich & Young create art that subverts Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection with elements of supernatural ceremonial ritual. The concepts of nature and super-nature are explored in the work. Fantich & Young view this process as Darwinian Voodoo.
