The ARKA Group
The ARKA group is a collaboration between Ben Jeans Houghton & Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau. Their work takes different forms, from sculptural installations that dismantle cinematic ideas and methodologies, to films and sound works addressing the stranger fringes of scientific and philosophical thought. The ARKA group’s films often subsume and manipulate the subject specific language of the ideas they investigate through the use of fictive protagonists and narrative voiceover. Their sculptural work uses found, bought and made materials to create art objects which sit somewhere between the precious and the abject.
