statement


Ida Tursic was born in 1974 in Belgrade, Serbia; Wilfried Mille, was born in 1974 in Boulogne sur Mer, France, the same year.

Tursic and Mille began to sign their work jointly in the early 2000s in an anti-painting climate, which confirmed their choice to become painters – actually ‘a painter,’ almost as if they were one person, as in fact the principle of association will be the basis of everything that would follow. With a well-known anti-conformism, the artists strive to create a work against trends, subversive and poetic at the same time, digesting the idea of Asger Jorn according to which "painting is painting's favourite food" and noting the obsolescence of abstract and figurative, minimal and conceptual elements in Twenty-first century painting. Opposed to all ideas of style (considered as routine confinement), Tursic and Mille strive to find in painting an experience of freedom.
