Anne and Patrick Poirier (Marseille/Nantes, 1942) have worked in a variety of media, including photography, drawing, installation and monumental public sculpture. Their work has always dealt with themes such as archeology, ruins, disintegration, loss and remembering. As they articulate it, "we believe that ignorance or the destruction of cultural memory brings in its wake every sort of oblivion, falsehood and excess and that we must, with all the modest means at our disposal, oppose this generalized amnesia and destruction."
