Mr.&Mrs.Gray are artist duo Jeroen van der Linde en Carmen Hutting. They work and live together in Den Haag, the Netherlands. Their work is about possibilities, chances and new adventures often to be found in the smallest and most trivial things. They do not believe in complaining and despairing over everything that's wrong, but in focussing on what there is to work with and figure out how to turn it into something better.
Mr.&Mrs.Gray's body of work consists of performances, social experiments, movies and interventions. Their current obsession is constructing life-sized paper boats from old magazines and cardboard boxes which can actually float.
Both Jeroen and Carmen attended the Willem the Kooning academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and graduated with honours at the MFA Interactive Media & Environments at the Frank Mohr Institute in Groningen, the Netherlands. Their thesis and final project covered an communication model for a CAVE (computer assisted virtual environment) based on communication through images. Their internship was with Li Edelkoort in Paris, France, for whom they've created an forecast book about digital media.
Mr.&Mrs.Gray have exhibited and participated in various events in the Netherlands and abroad. Their Paperboat project has amongst others been showcased during the International Streaming Festival, at Border Sessions (Crossing Border festival) and Waterwheel the International World Waterway Symposium.
In addition to their career as artists, Mr.&Mrs.Gray have been working as lecturers at the Willem the Kooning academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, l'Ecole Superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Strasbourg, France and the Fotovakschool in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
