Edwards+Johann: Rebels, Knights and Other Tomorrows

23 August – 2 November 2014

Combining vividly imagined photographs with sculptural elements, Christchurch-based collaborative duo Edwards+Johann present an enigmatic and playful installation laced with tension and possibility.

Christchurch-based collaborative duo Edwards+Johann present an installation laced with strange tensions and rich possibilities in Christchurch Art Gallery's latest Outer Spaces exhibition. Vividly imagined photographic sequences featuring elaborately costumed warrior knights and rocks suspended in jewel-like voids combine with sculptural elements to open up theatrical and enigmatic new worlds. Likening their partnership to a 'delicate duelling', the artists have worked together since 2007 in a range of media, including drawing, photography, installation, video and performance. They were recently among ten artists selected for a juried exhibition celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art.
