Private view 8 July, 6:30 – 8:30pm
In a new series of video and print work entitled The Beasts, JocJonJosch continue their explorations of what it means and feels like to work as a collective.
Informed by their recent work in physical performance pieces, The Beasts show Joc Marchington, Jonathan Brantschen and Joschi Herczeg entwined in a series of monstrous embraces. Each mutated beast that is born from the swallowed individuals is central to their extended investigation of collaboration.
Since forming as a group in 2008 this has involved questioning the contemporary idyll for working in collaboration; demonstrated by their intimate working relationship as it evolves through an arduous, at times uncomfortable and disabling, set of events.
It is felt that only through this difficult process of experimentation and discussion do the final pieces reach aesthetic significance.
The collective’s work will also be shown at the Royal Academy Summer Show this season.
