Featured artists of one : two : one will raise questions about Identity by exploring the concepts of twinning, mirroring and unison through movement, sound, spoken text, video, puppet theatre, mirrors and photography. There are works by identical twins and fraternal twins and wannabe twins and also works that explore artistic twinning and the pairing of diverse individuals. The works create a set of inquiries about how one can become two and how two can become one.
For this show, I am making a new set of Interstitials, which are essentially a form of experiential Marginalia (something I’ve been developing over the past few years; you can watch a video or read about it here) but also different, unique, special to the way Andrea Nann and I work together. That’s all I will say for now. Hope to blog more about the work in the coming weeks.
