The celebrity couple has emerged as a distinct entity with a life of its own. These media creations live in all our minds as androgynous beings with public souls. We combine their names in tabloid christenings, and these new identities meet with instant recognition.
Androgenius shows that combining their faces leads to the same result. These hybrid beings, surreal yet eerily familiar, play with our perceptions of what is real and what is all in our minds. They inhabit a different reality, perpetually torn between their own fantasy lives and the enactment of our own dreams.
Da Xiang is a multimedia artist based in the UK. Androgenius is his first series.
