John Wood & Paul Harrison Aug 26 – Sep 04 2011 von Bartha, S-chanf
John Wood (*1969 in Hong Kong) and Paul Harrison (*1966 in Wolverhampton, England) 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 and 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.
