Since 2001, when Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide-Pierson formed Assume Vivid Astro Focus, they have taken museums, galleries, and public spaces worldwide by storm, displaying the duo’s neon-bright, image-laden, carnivalesque installations. Fusing drawing, sculpture, collage, video, music, and performance, Assume Vivid Astro Focus creates immersive spaces expressive of a lust for life and a belief in the “freedom to share/ spread/absorb/assume/ contaminate/inseminate/ devour.” Abundant and irresistible, the pair’s work also poses challenges—to restrictions of speech and civil rights to rigid classifications of identity.
