Duo of artist-sculptors, composed of two brothers:
Karim Berchiche born in 1978 in Le Quesnoy (Nord) & Luc Berchiche born in 1981 in Le Quesnoy (Nord)
Currently live and work in Paris
Behind La Fratrie are two brothers, Karim, who holds a DEA in Political Science from the IEP in Paris, and Luc, who holds a Master's degree in Plastic Arts from the University of Lille 3.
They have been creating since their childhood with four hands, hence the choice of their artist name, fascinating sculptures of precision and evocations that question man in his relationship to the environment.
Suspended miniature islands or meticulous constructions, by their plastic and formal precision, their sculptures, composed of multiple materials, give their creators a dimension of craftsmen of a utopian world in the true sense of the term ("the place which is not ").
These aerial rocks constitute so many worlds in themselves, illusions uprooted from their space of origin. Singular and complex fictions, they introduce mostly allegorical narrative scenes but also real reflections on the brevity and fragility of life.
