ATOI  are a collaborative duo that formed in 2008 due to a shared fervent approach to material, construct and concepts on viewer immersion. They have undertaken residencies in China and Europe, curated and constructed live events at The Garage CCC Moscow over two years, The Tate Tanks, The Tate Britain and founded a sculptural site in Deptford: ATOI & CULL. ATOI have had notable solo shows at Karst-Plymouth, Aid&Abet- Cambridge, Anarch- London, La Fragua-Spain and The Chinese European Art Centre- China. They currently live and work in Cornwall after making a decision in 2013 to move from London to feed their need for a natural rawness. ATOI’s work is rooted in sculpture, photography and manipulated live scenarios, often reworking or exhibiting aftermath, whilst using their own manifesto of 'CULL’; a process of cyclical harvest which involves the reconditioning and scrutinization of sculpture often within live charged contexts or scenarios. For example utilising MMA (Cage fighters) as a mode of collaboration within sculptural foundations; it bares an underlying fascination with exploring the relationship between cause and effect, whereby the repercussions of the second event are lionised and further understood as a physical consequence of the first. Recent developments in their work have lead to an interest in Forensic Architecture, a suggestion that architecture, although a solid form, is elastic, constantly responding and acting as witness to its surroundings. 

AMY THOMAS & OLIVER IRVINE (b. 1986, Manchester & Porstewart) Thomas and Irvine both hold a BA Honours degree in Fine Art from the Univeristy College of Falmouth (2008) and are a collaborative artistic duo.
