Since 1993, when John Wood and Paul Harrison first filmed themselves clambering over an MDF board, the Bristol-based double act have burnt down a pier, climbed Everest and been to the moon. Not actually, of course, but within their studio, where the artists translate real life experience into witty video works featuring everyday objects and increasingly elaborate sets. Wood and Harrison’s work is a near-perfect rendering of human trial and tribulation, both funny and sad.
