Unafraid of delving into some of the world’s most complex and contentious issues – from religion to our obsession with technology – no theme is left unexplored by creative duo Mrzyk and Moriceau. Consisting of Petra Mrzyk and Jean-François Moriceau, the couple have been in partnership for over 20 years. Their comical and provocative images, which are peppered with pop culture references, have gained them a cult following. Throughout their work the duo often explore the theme of hair as a playful riposte to society’s bizarre and often contradictory beauty ideals.
