Edwards + Johann's collaborative work interweaves drawing, painting, performative activities, video and installation with photography. Their images seem both inherently stable yet also subject to temporality. They present a ground in which sensitivities and questions of existence can be played out. Utilising a range of media and methods in their work, their collaborative approach is a process based on research lab. Sole authorship becomes obsolete in the process of making new work in any of their projects/exhibitions.
