This duo blends early silent cinema, archaeological dig, and late-60s land art into “poetic fictions”. They may not make sense to you, but they are lovely and use retro effects like that iron filings and magnets game from the early 1970s.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with the 22nd Images Festival, 2-11 April 2009.
