ARTIST STATEMENT

TWINS CORPORATED (former Tvillingregistret) is an artist duo formed in 2016 by twin sisters Clara & Julia von Schantz.
Their collaboration is based on the intertwined experiences that emerge from sharing an identical twinship.

Their observations are juxtaposed with how twinship is represented in society in general, and in pop-culture and medical epidemiology in particular.
One such example is how twins are systematically mistaken for someone else, which contradicts the capitalistic Western imperative for constant individualization.
As a result they get disjoined as individuals, but at the same time clotted together. Are identical twins really able to contain their own individualism?
