About MAP Office
MAP Office is a multidisciplinary platform devised by Laurent Gutierrez (b. 1966, Casablanca, Morocco) and Valérie Portefaix (b. 1969, Saint-Étienne, France). The duo of artists/architects has been based in Hong Kong since 1996, working on physical and imaginary territories using varied means of expression including drawing, photography, video, installation, performance, and literary and theoretical texts. Their work critiques spatio-temporal anomalies and documents how human beings subvert and appropriate space. They use humor, games, and fiction as part of their approach, and often produce publications that disseminate their work.
