Since 2001, when Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide-Pierson formed assume vivid astro focus, museums, galleries, and public spaces worldwide have been set aflame with the duo’s image-laden, neon-bright, Carnavalesque installations. Fusing drawing, sculpture, collage, video, music, and performance, assume vivid astro focus creates immersive spaces expressive of a lust for life and a belief in the “freedom to share/spread/absorb/assume/contaminate/inseminate/devour.” Abundant and irresistible, the pair’s work also poses challenges—to restrictions of speech and civil rights and to rigid classifications of identity.
