Richard Ibghy et Marilou Lemmens

Artist / Winter 2024


Combining rigorous research with a material exploration that is specific to each project, Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens’ collaborative practice adopts diverse strategies and formats, including the production of sculptures, videos, installations, public artworks, and artist books. For several years, they have examined the history of science and other forms of knowledge, including the language of economics, the magic of statistics, the capacity for models to impact the future, the aesthetics of data visualization, and the design of laboratory experiments. More recently, their work seeks to expand concepts of hospitality, care, and interspecies communication. They live in Durham-Sud, Québec.
