Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese have collaborated together as Ligorano/Reese since the early 80’s. They use collaboration to blend diverse talents into a singular voice and vision. They use unusual materials and industrial processes to make their limited edition multiples, videos, sculptures and installations, moving easily from dish towels, underwear, and snow globes, to electronic art and computer controlled interactive installations. Many of their sculptures and installations reinterpret and reexamine older forms of technology—using objects that signify truth, authority and manifest cultural historicity.
In 2001, they launched www.pureproductsusa.com, the online retail website for their infamous political art series the Pure Products of America. They are best selling editions at Printed Matter, artbook@ps1 and the New Museum store and have prompted, at least on one occasion, the RNC to threaten them with copyright infringement.
