Fantich & Young

Artists duo Fantich & Young – Mariana Fantich (Ukraine) and Dominic Young (UK) are London based artists that started collaborating in 2008 and have since then been known as Fantich & Young.

The work addresses parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world: Nature as model or nature as threat.

The work critiques theories that originated in 1860 by the political philosopher Herbert Spencer that have become known as Social Darwinism.

The work investigates the themes of competition, social hierarchy, winners and losers, invaders and the invaded, persecutors and the persecuted and the grey areas in-between.

The work encompasses a conceptual and aesthetical approach to the sculptural juxtaposition of symbolic ready-made materials.

The Work implements multimedia applications and 3D Printmaking.
