The exhibition Muddy Waters, first solo show in Italy by the duo Christto & Andrew opens to the public at NonostanteMarras on Saturday, november 26 with a preview by invitation only on friday, November 25th at 7PM. The exhibition is presented as part of Photo Vogue Festival, that takes place in Milan 22-26 November 2016, and produced by METRONOM, in collaboration with NonostanteMarras.


With Muddy Waters Christto & Andrew explore how beauty can be objective through the awareness of ordinary characters and objects. Christto Sanz and Andrew Weir live and work in Doha, inside the Qatar Gulf, but they are not native of the country; the condition of 'espatriate' reveals their attention and curiosity on what happens around them, the unexpected changes in economical, social, cultural fields in the city and in the country in which they work and live. This punctual observation was the starting point for their first body of work Unparalleled Objectivity, where they explored the concept of identity and the impact of the globalization in a transition context.  Their position of outsider allow their gaze to be non-conventional (and traditional) on the Middle East; the team work permits to develop a complex and shared language, analyzing the photographic medium as a creator of images that stand between the real and the technologically-built world of Qatar.


Featured in the exhibition, some newest works and a selection of pieces by the previous series, providing a trajectory on their expanding career. The exhibition is presented as part of Photo Vogue Festival 2016 and produced by METRONOM, with the collaboration of  NonostanteMarras. A limited edition publication with an interview by Alessia Glaviano and Chiara Bardelli Nonino to the artist, will be released for the exhibition. A text by Francesca Alfano Miglietti - curator at NonostanteMarras - will accompany the show. 


Christto Sanz (Puerto Rico, 1985) and Andrew Jay Weir (South Africa, 1987) met each other in 2009 in Barcellona, where they both used to study. They now live and work in Doha, Qatar. Christto & Andrew's practice evolves as a symbiotic process strengthened by a cross-pollination of their differing backgrounds. Together they produce photography, mixed media objects and videos exploring social identities, the media and reinterpretations of history.  Christto & Andrew since the inception of their collaboration in 2012 have exhibited at Katara Art Center, Doha (2014); Espai Tactel, Valencia - Spain (2016), East Wing Gallery, Doha (2016), Unseen Photo Festival, Amsterdam (2016); Museu Nogueira da Silva, Braga - Portugal (2016). Muddy Waters is their first personal exhibition in Italy.
