We each have long-standing individual artistic practices; we started to collaborate in 2015. Our joint projects combine our pre-existing solo concerns and recurring strategies into works that accent site and sound space. We have performed at Ftarri (Tokyo, Experimental Intermedia (NYC), Arraymusic and Electric Perfume (both in Toronto). We have installed our joint work at ArKO Museum (Seoul), Errant Bodies (Berlin), Glenfiddich Gallery (Scotland), Produit Rien (Montreal), and Christie Contemporary (Toronto).
