Together since 2016, the Brazilian/Canadian duo, Chico Togni & Kadija de Paula, create situations and happenings that take place in structures and functional objects they build with found materials, to question the value of resources, labour and social practices.

Interested in degrowth as a political and economic movement that can help us survive the catastrophic Anthropocene, they research consumption habits and disposal processes so as to challenge how we produce, reproduce, accumulate and waste an abundant surplus of resources.

Their works propose other ways to use, exchange and share what we have, by blurring the limits of art and life through a continuous individual and institutional critique of what is understood, practiced, encouraged, and reproduced as the norm.
