The entertainment industry gives us the opportunity to live experiences, events that we are not willing to try ourselves through the media eye. Abstract thinking is annihilated and current events are ingested without stopping. Two spectators are emptying their minds via supersaturation with meaningless visual elements. Do they keep on watching or do they withdraw?

‘Between our Hands’
Zierle & Carter
Between our Hands explores notions of belonging and ‘non belonging’, of home and of desolation, bringing focus to what actions it takes to move from a space of non belonging back into a place of belonging. A process unfolds, an action of shedding and tearing away the ‘wasteland’, of journeying and reconstructing a sense of home.
Zierle & Carter’s work has been widely exhibited internationally throughout Europe, Canada, United States, South America, Australia, in Asia and Africa.

Because I’m happy

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
