Berger&Berger live and work in Paris.
Laurent P. Berger, visual artist and Cyrille Berger, architect, have been collaborating since 2006 under the name Berger&Berger.
They develop work in multiple fields, considering the disciplines of visual arts, design, scenography and architecture as related, specific and partially different; contributing to a complex, rich and contradictory construction of reality, of imaginary, stage, landscaped or museum space.
In 1999-2000, Laurent P. Berger was awarded an Académie de France scholarship to Rome and was resident at Villa Médici. He has participated in numerous exhibitions, including at the Whitney Museum Biennial in New York, at the Museo Alejandro Otero in Caracas, at the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil in Mexico, at the MACBA in Barcelona, at the Museu Berardo in Lisbon, at the International Biennial from Marrakech, at the Fellbach Triennial, at the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in Madrid, at the Basque Museum Center of Contemporary Art, at the Pera Museum in Istanbul or at the Museum of Contemporary Arts at Grand-Hornu.
At the same time, he intervenes in the field of performance, in theater, opera and dance, creating scenographies and lights for projects presented in Europe, America and Asia.
Cyrille Berger is winner of the New Albums of Young Architects and Landscapers (NAJAP 2007-2008), prize awarded by the French Ministry of Culture.
