Wu Shanzhuan (b. 1960) was born in Zhoushan and currently lives and works in Hamburg and Shanghai. In 1986, he graduated from the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art and Hochschulefürbildende Künste in 1995. During this period, he also founded Red Humour in 1985 and Red Humour International in 1990.

 

Inga Svala Thorsdottir (b. 1966) was born in Iceland. In 1991, she graduated from the Painting Department of the Icelandic School of Arts and Crafts and Hochschulefürbildende Künstein 1995. She also founded Thor’s Daughter’s Pulverization Service in 1993 and BORG in 1999.

 

Wu and Thorsdottir have been working and exhibiting collaboratively since 1991 and are both currently living and working in Hamburg and Shanghai. Their collaborations began during a visit to the Moderna Museet in Stockholm when Wu decided to illicitly pee into Marcel Duchamp’s urinal while Thorsdottir took photographs to document the act; this work was entitled An Appreciation (1991). They found in each other to be kindred spirits who were both humorously attempting to change society’s human-centred worldview, thereby saving humanity.
