Inspired by the cave drawings of Lascaux, Egyptian hieroglyphs and proto writings from Mesopotamia, the artist duo Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank are working on new objects in which they convert their own lives and work into simple symbolic line drawings. These drawings are a way to examine themselves, the world in which they live and their artistic practice. At the same time they are laying a foundation for translating less tangible ideas and systems. By doing so, they follow the example of the Egyptians, who, in their murals, not only depicted daily actions, but also translated their cosmological system into symbolic representations.
