Thomas Houseago and Muna El Fituri, the couple who electrify contemporary art

They are almost unknown to the general public. However, the British sculptor Thomas Houseago and his companion, the art therapist Muna El Fituri, of Libyan origin, frequent the stars and the international elite of collectors. The tormented trajectories of the pair shake up and fascinate the art world.

the exhibition "Untitled 2020" which the couple curated with Caroline Bourgeois, curator of the Pinault.Spike Lee collection, was to play the masters of ceremonies. A role he knows well: the filmmaker has already dedicated their union - just as symbolic - on Tetiaroa Atoll, in Polynesia. The artist Lorna Simpson, known for her photocollages that evoke the African-American question, was also expected to be in attendance. So did Brad Pitt, a friend of the couple, who had already crossed the Atlantic to see Houseago's exhibition in 2019 at the Museum of Modern Art in the City of Paris.

François Pinault, a father figurenaturellement, François Pinault was also invited. A figure of the father, according to the sculptor, with whom he shares "the same burning energy".

Incidentally, one of his greatest collectors and promoters - the French billionaire owns no less than fifteen works. The crisis caused by the Covid-19 decided otherwise, adjourning the union, like the exhibition, which finally opened its doors on 11 July. Without the couple, stayed in California. Houseago is stuck in Malibu, where he is facing treatment for psychological problems related to his father's death in 2019, while his girlfriend confines herself to their Los Angeles home.

Thomas Houseago, right, with Brad Pitt and François Pinault, at its opening at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, March 12, 2019. LaurentVu/SIPAThe few tourists who will return to Venice this summer and who will push to the end of the Punta della Dogana to contemplate the lagoon do not know who Thomas Houseago and Muna El Fituri are. The general public doesn't know them. On the other hand, all that the art world has of celebrities and powerful people has gone through their huge studio in Los Angeles, where half a dozen assistants are active. Their address book is akin to a "name dropping" contest.

The regulars? Michael Govan, the powerful patron of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma), who commissioned a large work from Houseago for his disputed extension, Eli Broad, a wealthy real estate mogul who has a museum to his name, and Brad Pitt, who, between shoots, makes works out of sight. Like the enlightened notables of the early 20th century,

The "beautiful people" of today are fascinated by Houseago and its intensity, which embodies both the grandeur and excesses of the art world.

"Thomas is "bigger than life," as the Americans say, "he literally occupies space," smiles his Brussels gallery owner, Xavier Hufkens, who has accompanied his ascent since his difficulty years. It energizes everything in its path, his friend, the American painter Henry Taylor.Il goes so fast, it is difficult to follow him.

Brad was supposed to go to Venice 3/23/20 for the Venice Art Exhibition curated by Thomas & Muna, before it was delayed due to Covid-19.

Thomas and Muna have been quarantining separately, him in Malibu, her in LA.

Thomas is getting psychological help/therapy.

She's supposed to be an art therapist, but her partner is in another city getting therapy without her. Interesting :shh:

Brad and Flea were in Malibu when papped back in May.

Thomas and Muna probably will divorce. Many couples divorced during the pandemic.

I wonder if Muna's been sick, or has cancer. Her appearance has been different since they were in New Orleans back in Feb 2020.

His divorce from Amy was final on Oct 1 2019 after five long years so maybe they will at some point . Muna was his therapist when he and Amy split .

Lets not be fooled in believing that truth has anything to do with it . Image is everything , and perception is reality . IMO

Thomas seems to have alot of inner demons he's contending with. Most artists do. As long as he gets help and stays sober, then he should be alright.

The pandemic has put a lot of relationships to the test. And it's either strengthened or ended marriages/relationships.

No in between.
