'THE CHARTER or TERMS
OF ENGAGEMENT'
(original document and detail)
2006

Based on interviews with the
owners of Gallop, London, we
wanted to quantify all of the
anxieties involved in working
with other people.

This was written up in the style of
a standard Health and Safety
poster that we all then signed.

'BILLY JOEL AS TEACHING RESOURCE'
Studio Voltaire, London 2005

For 'The Notion Nanny Tea Party' organised by B&B for New York artist Alison Smith's exhibition

Alison's project looked at hand-made crafts, history and protest. We thought a rendition from memory of Billy Joel's 'We didn't start the Fire' in fancy dress costumes as two of the characters listed in the song would be appropriate.

A provocative quote carefully
removed from a large sheet of card.
Then subjected to twenty minutes
of competitive darts.

This is from a series of works
where we take pot-shots at
inspiring but disquieting statements.

'WALL PAINTING'
2004

Whilst on a residency with
Grizedale Arts in the Lake District
we decided to spend a few days

traced around various woodchips in
the wallpaper with black paint.
Before we left we got the wall
painted back to it's original white.
