Domenico Mangano (b. 1976, Palermo, Italy), and Marieke van Rooy (b. 1974, Weert, NL), live and work in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The duo was formed in 2014, fusing Domenico Mangano’s individual artistic career, with Marieke van Rooy’s academic background in political history of the built environment.
Their work is characterized by a combination of research and artistic practice. The narrative approach is central to their projects. Micro stories, political and architectural constructions of the social, as well as research into the history of the local, form the basis of their art. The duo combines archival research with participation and educational projects in their process, which manifest variously as film, sculptural installations, participatory performances and publications.
