Kolkoz is a French art collective consisting of Samuel Boutruche and Benjamin Moreau. The two artists both live and work in Paris under the Kolkoz moniker. They create art in a diverse range of mediums that spans from video to sculpture and installation. One of their recent series turns the idea of framing art on its head. While the luxurious gold frame is a common sight in most museums around the world, Kolkoz has created sculptural forms using just the frame. These works consist of multiple frames within a frame. Ornate gold borders are assembled together in an Escher-like optical illusion with no image at all.
