"Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille’s painting does not concern itself with subject matter or content; what it aspires to before anything else is to be an object. This object is, in fact, Painting." Eric Troncy, ‘Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille : Decade’, Les Presses du réel, 2011

Since they began collaborating as a duo in 2000, painters Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille have been interrogating the contemporary overload of images and their relation with pictorial representation, questioning their reproduction, circulation and disappearance. Taken out of movies, magazines, media and the enormous repertory of data available on the internet, this boundless source of anonymous, preexisting material is used up and transformed into paintings. With their landscapes, erotica, portraits and abstract compositions, Tursic and Mille blur pre-existing hierarchies between all kinds of images, aiming to go forward with the history and genre of painting as it exists in the 21st century.
