Delia Gonzalez is born 1972 in Miami, USA, and Gavin Russom in 1974 in Providence, USA. They both currently live and work in New York, USA, and Berlin, Germany.

Delia Gonzalez and Gavin Russom have been working collaboratively in a variety of media for the past seven years. The US duo has made a name for itself both in electronic music and in the contemporary art scene, although today it is hard to draw a clear distinction between the two domains.

GONZALEZ---RUSSOM---culturecie.com---expositions.jpg For Art & Entrepreneurship Delia Gonzalez and Gavin Russom have produced a modular sound sculpture which is a contemporary labyrinth. The installation combines electronic sound with reduced modular sculptural forms. The labyrinth is historically a place of initiation and transformation. Its architecture leads one through a circuitous path, confusion and disorientation rising until the center is reached, a metaphor for the spiritual journey inward.

Then one undertakes another disorienting journey out, a metaphor for the return to society as a completed and whole individual. According to the artists the set of entrepreneurial values can be read as an analog for this evolution of passing through the labyrinth as they describe the process by which individuals engage themselves and then society, beginning with inner Vision and eventually – fuelled by Knowledge – moving outward toward Social Responsibility.

The interlinkage of stringent conceptual forms and a mythical experience of space is one of the unique properties of works by Gonzalez & Russom. In 2006, the duo exhibited in the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich, Switzerland, and in 2005 in the Sculpture Center in Long Island City, New York, USA. They also held performances at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France, and at the Hamburger Kunstverein in Germany. In 2007 they showed at Fonti Gallery in Naples and at the Art Statements section of Art Basel.
