About the artwork
The collective assume vivid astro focus was formed in New York City in 2001. Its principal members are Eli Sudbrack (b. 1968, Rio de Janeiro) and Christophe Hamaide-Pierson (b. 1973 Paris). avaf fuses drawing, sculpture, video, and performance into carnivalesque installations in which gender, politics, and cultural codes float freely. A study in visual adaptation and modification, the collective's work recycles and transforms imagery from one project to the next—often in the form of densely patterned wallpapers and graphic signage.
