The project, which marks Kurzen and De Wilde’s first collaboration, slices through the layers of twinhood to explore not only the mythology of this duality but also their joint venture.
Noting a shared interest in the mythologies of twinhood in Nigeria, Bénédicte Kurzen (b.1980, France) and Sanne De Wilde (b.1987, Belgium), both members of NOOR Photography Agency, sought to explore the topic together further. De Wilde’s work, which explores how genetics shapes and affects people and communities, and Kurzen’s, which documents the socio-economic changes across the African continent, formed the basis of a fruitful collaboration, which took place over three months in 2018.
