In this very personnal artist book dealing with similarity, Drowilal, confronts photographs of Mazaccio - taken in the intimacy of the couple for about 10 years - with portraits of celebrities from TV shows, red carpets or paintings, all evoking on way or another Mazaccio. The two iconographies are presented top/down - so the book can be 'read' in both ways : one sequence of portraits, and one sequence of look-alikes.

In the “Paparazzis” series, you’ve paired tabloid cut-outs of celebrities with idealised backdrops of nature. Can you talk about the story behind this series?

E: The starting point of this series was a collection of celebs’ pictures from their everyday activities like shopping and golfing, but all shot by the paparazzi. We collected them first from magazines, then from the internet.
R: Gathering the images in the same picture allows for the sensational side to be neutralised, so there was a shift from the «scoop» of catching a celeb, to an anonymous crowd... and it seemed very interesting to us.

'The wit of these images, together with their unfailing attractiveness and frequent ambiguity, makes it clear that the Mazaccio & Drowilal stance is not actually a critical one: rather, they set up a series of games and interconnections around our virtual era awareness of a total (and in some respects fascinating) merging of the living with the consumable, the strange with the familiar, the natural with the artificial, reality with its images.

'Based on the fact that being an artist seems to be more a condition than a job, we made a report on the Mazaccio's right index (the one she uses to take photos): The Trigger. It is observed in its everyday life, and all its actions, even the most innocuous such as flushing, are being reified. " R.D

Twins is definitely a Borgesian book. It focuses on the topic of fakeness and simulacre through images of celebrities posing alongside their wax double (in Museums such as Madame Tussaud or Grévin). The layout presents the pictures torn off (like after a breakdown), and pasted on the front and on the back of the same page ; by this way the viewer is never able to look at the original and the copy at the same time.
