Astali/Peirce work in the field of mixed media, collage, sculpture and installation. Seeking out the crossroads between these generic disciplines, the artists generate hybrid materials and forms that court and probe the epistemological field. Informed by modern psychoanalytic theory, semiotics and fiction, Astali/Peirce dramatize a journey into the complexities of hybrid identity formations, where atomized signs and plastics merge to form a synthetic, ductile and pliable body.
