Overview

Since they began collaborating in 1993, John Wood and Paul Harrison have accumulated a series of playful and beguiling video works which are distinguished as much by their droll sense of humor as their unerring economy of execution. Played out against a minimalist, monochrome backdrop, or within the sealed-off space of the monitor itself, each of the works involves the presence of one of the artists, either as the butt of an extended sight-gag or as the trigger for a spiralling, visually surprising conceit. This publication, which features an essay by Charles Esche, documents Wood and Harrison's work to date, including single-screen works and installations.
