BichardTroj are an artist duo that explore the nature of sexuality, storytelling and the art historical nude through the filters of contemporary culture. By combining their original work, video game tropes, folktales, and questioning gender roles, the duo create unformed stories: fragments of an evoked world that questions our understanding of the narrative nude in art and contemporary culture. The works collide Bichard’s photographic portraits with Troj’s neo-classical paintings as elements in a questioning collaborative exchange.
Iva Troj and John Paul Bichard have been working on The Garden and The Illumination Series since 2013.
