Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens
Since we began collaborating in 2002, our artistic practice has involved heightening the allusive and deconstructive features of language to interrogate knowledge-formations, institutional contexts, and social and psychological entanglements. The Wilful Undertaking of Serious Chances pursues themes addressed in recent works that examine how desire and belief influence economic discourse and practices but also carry the potential for inciting new forms of thinking and doing economy.
Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens live and work in Montreal. Their work has been presented at galleries and institutions including Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond, Labor K1, Berlin, Galleria Alkovi, Helsinki, Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, VU, Quebec City, Owens Art Gallery, Sackville, the European Media Art Festival, Osnabrück, and Trafó, House of Contemporary Arts, Budapest. Most recently, they have presented their work at the 10th Sharjah Biennial, UAE.
