Petra Elena Köhle & Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin

Petra Köhle (12.03.1977, Schlieren) and Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin (06.04.1977, Meyriez) have been collaborating since 2003. They studied photography and art at the Zurich University of the Arts, the Universidad del Cine Buenos Aires and Central Saint Martins, The University of the Arts, London. The artist duo’s installations have to do with the act of selective history writing and a rereading of its conditions and consequences. They have been artists in residence at the Swiss Institute in Rome and the Cité internationale des Arts in Paris. Selected shows (2011/12) include: Palais de Tokyo, Museum für moderne Kunst Frankfurt, Shedhalle Zurich, Swiss Art Award, Basle.
