The Kingpins

The Kingpins

Our practice is situated predominately in contemporary art via live performance and gallery-based exhibitions. Our work has performance strategies at its heart, and experimentations with the body using drag, costume, dance, and character constructions. These ideas
are returned to the gallery via video and sculpture installation. We attempt to create our own mythologies using our physicality as a starting point we can extend upon. We construct characters using found costumes, found audio, found imagery, and reconfiguring these into our language. We take inspiration from vaudeville traditions and cheap show tricks that collage and puppet the body to magical and humorous effect. We source elements from art history and contemporary visual culture and combine them with our own local context and landscape.
