Using the temperate rain forest as a common point of reference, Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen will tap into the collective imagination by processing their individual experience of the rainforest into a three-dimensional “drawing” of crumpled and twisted paper.
Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen, both based in Brooklyn, NY have collaborated since 2005. They continue making work together because their collaborative process has given them a platform to articulate the collective processing of what they see and to continually re-question visual foundations such as memory, perception and imagination. The process of questioning at the root of their collaboration has encouraged experimentation and play that might otherwise not exist in their individual artistic practices.
