John Wood & Paul Harrison
John Wood b. 1969 Kowloon, Hong Kong / Paul Harrison b. 1966 Wolverhampton, UK / Live and work in Bristol, UK
John Wood & Paul Harrison both studied at the Bath College of Higher Education and have been working together since 1993. The video works, which include performance of the Harrison & Wood duo take a position between tragedy, comedy and irony. These works, which are minimalist, sculptural and have elements of installation and performance, oscillate between failure, calculation and randomness. They are experiments with the size, the volume and the movement of the human body in relation to the surrounding architecture, which the two artists have usually built themselves.
