Nicholas and Sheila Pye

10:00, Color, Stereo
Nick and Sheila Pye primarily work with video and photography, their projects explore themes of intimacy and emotional interdependence. In their ten-minute video titled ‘The Paper Wall’, a thin division stands between two characters in separate bedrooms. The two protagonists – played by the artists – use nonverbal communication of fear and desire. They grow increasingly dependant on one another while performing a series of choreographed gestures that include basic bodily functions such as breathing and urinating. The silent characters in the Pyes’ moody, erotic video open the work to several potential narratives.
