MAP Office (Laurent Gutierrez, Valérie Portefaix)


MAP Office is a multidisciplinary platform devised by Associate Professor Laurent Gutierrez (b. 1966, Casablanca, Morocco) and Visiting Assistant Professor Valérie Portefaix (b. 1969, Saint-Étienne, France) from the School of Design, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. This 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, installations, performance, and literary and theoretical texts. Their entire project forms a critique of spatio-temporal anomalies and documents how human beings subvert and appropriate space. Humor, games, and fiction are also part of their approach, in the form of small publications providing a further format for disseminating their work.
