In Fleck&Flecker, Sandall & Mortimer Eipper question what it is they do for each other; to each other; with each other, and ultimately who they become together. Thus the work is, in part, an exploration of this ‘third entity’ – their togetherness – which seems to possess a life unto itself.
The journey crosses into the inner worlds of each individual, as well as into their shared histories; their holding onto each other; their compromises and their efforts to continue.
The title of the work references a self portrait of the same name by the Austrian artist Karl Anton Fleck. Fleck’s self portrait depicts a decapitated body holding two heads in its hands, reflecting two sides of one personality. The Ludwig pair were intensely struck by the symbolism inherent in this work, and drew an immediate connection between it and their relationship with one another.
