Their artistic work embraces several art fields and activities such as sculpture, graphics, illustration, design, and workshops for children on art and recycling. They stand out for creating and producing objects with recovered materials, unique pieces born by collecting and assembling element that has been “dumped by the time”. Sea-worn wood, old doors, furniture and fabrics, unused items or parts thereof are recomposed following the rules of artistic recycling until they take on a new form and turn into sculptures or bizarre objects.
MOOK has always conducted researches in the iconographic-editorial field, promoting exhibitions in many Italian galleries and museums, and working for various Italian companies.
They are mainly inspired by the use of discarded materials, which evoke a historical memory. They are also very interested in the playful dimension of objects, as it connects the observer with his own childhood world, often forgotten, and with the awareness of his being a social subject.
