THE COOL COUPLE



The Cool Couple is an artist duo formed by Niccolò Benetton (b. 1986) and Simone Santilli (b. 1987) at the end of 2012, blending the members' previous researches in the fields of semiotics and philosophy.

 

The Cool Couple's work is based on themes linked to the reception and consumption of collective representations, ranging through different languages and registers set within strong project frameworks. They also received several awards and exhibited their work both in Italy and abroad, for instance the exhibition Territori instabili at Centro di Cultura Contemporanea Strozzina in Florence and their participation in Offprint Paris. In 2014, they were the recipients of the Francesco Fabbri Award for Contemporary Art as well as the winners of the first prize of the yearly Collettiva Giovani Artisti show at Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation, Venice. In 2015 they took part in Circulation(s), Festival de la Jeune Photographie Européenne in Paris, in Plat(t)form at Fotomuseum in Winterthur, and were included in the Discovery Award section of Les Rencontres de la Photographie, Arles. Among the prices they received, Graziadei Award in 2015 and Euromobil under 30 Award in 2017.
