Mariana Fantich (Ukraine) and Dominic Young (UK) are East London based artists that started collaborating together in 2008 and have since then been known as Fantich & Young.
Fantich & Young's body of work entails a conceptual and aesthetical approach to the sculptural juxtaposition of symbolic ready-made materials. Their work addresses parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world: Nature as model or nature as threat.
Their latest work Darwinian Voodoo creates art that subverts Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection with the belief system of supernatural ceremonial ritual. The concepts of nature and super-nature are explored in the work.
