V&B (Alex Jacobs en Ellemieke Schoenmaker) is an artist duo founded in Los Angeles in 2007. In our paintings, sculptures and installations we often comment on the (art) world with some form of self-mockery. Our work combines historic references with borrowed elements from the media and popular culture. Both spontaneous inspiration and critical interest reveal unexpected combinations that invite the viewer to search for commonly missed connotations.
We have had multiple solo and group exhibitions in national and international museums, exhibition spaces an galleries. Next to exhibitions we have received many awards and stipendia. Our work can be found in both private and other collections, such as Centraal Museum Utrecht, Museum Voorlinden and Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milan, Italy.
