Our work pays particular focus to the The Twin; what it is to be an identical being – to in an essence share an identity with your double. We explore the worldwide fascination with twins; in terms of the pop. culture phenomenon of The Evil Twin, the depths of the twin motif throughout folklore, and the themes explored through psychology and psychoanalysis. We aim to take advantage of the visual power – the awkwardness, the lack of fit and belonging, the freakish feel – of the twin motif. Within the performative element of our self portraits we illustrate the relevance of this evocative subject, in the context of a culture still fixated on The Individual.
