Awst and Walther are collaborative artists who began their partnership in 2006.


Manon Awst was born in 1983 in Wales and studied Architecture at the University of Cambridge. Benjamin Walther was born in 1978 in Germany and studied Art History and Philosophy at Humboldt-Universitat, Berlin, following which he worked extensively as a theatre director throughout Germany.


Their combined backgrounds in architecture and theatre strongly influence their on-going exploration of intimate relationships between human beings and their physical surroundings, through the themes of power dynamics, transformative potential and the division between our mental and physical self-perception.


By adopting a subtle yet critical approach to their practice, they put society’s governing values and accepted behaviour under scrutiny.
