Exhibition Text: Now and Then is a performance-video installation that wrestles with the largely private, and complex spaces of lived experience. In the work, the artists float in a dark bed of water, their bodies continuously drifting towards and apart from one another, as though caught in a strange orbit. Accompanied by an eerie soundtrack, their tango manically jolts between smooth, inevitable pulls, and disjointed, random collisions. Through the work, the artists’ question the belief that any relationship is predestined rather than formed through proximity, chance and circumstance; and explore the transient states of connection and disconnection.
