Lolo & Sosaku
Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1977
Tokyo, Japan, 1976
Live and work in Barcelona, Spain

"Our work happens on the edges, pushes them, blurs them, questions them.”

Lolo & Sosaku investigate the possibilities of sculpture as an expanded field. The nexus
that unites their work is the quest for an object in contact with its surroundings and with
the spectator, an object that seeks friction and tension, exploring the capacity of creating
new meanings.
Their work moves between different artistic languages such as sculpture, installation,
kinetic art and painting, often incorporating music and sound. Its modus operandi is to
constitute itself as a subject and to reach from its machinic materiality to transcendence,
to mysticism and to the unknown.
Electronic music is certainly the highlight of their inspiration as a complex language
translated into sound installations and sculptural compositions. Shapes, lines, materials
and sounds are assembled together into motion sculptures that perform taking their own
voice in an unpredictable continuous transformation. Exploring many artistic horizons
and redefining boundaries, their interest is the energy and the hidden forces that guide
life in our technological age.
