about Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille

°1974 in Belgrade (Serbia) & °1974 in in Boulogne-sur-mer (FR) – live and work in Dijon (FR)

Since they began collaborating as a duo in 2000, painters Ida Tursic and
Wilfried Mille have been interrogating the contemporary overload of images and their relation with pictorial representation, questioning their reproduction, circulation and disappearance. Taken out of movies, magazines, media and the enormous repertory of data available on the internet, this boundless source of anonymous, preexisting material is used up and transformed into paintings. With their landscapes, erotica, portraits and abstract compositions, Tursic and Mille blur pre-existing hierarchies between all kinds of images, aiming to go forward with the history and genre of painting as it exists in the 21st century.
