The Jackson Twins, 2012

2013-09-09 Talks

"Our work pays particular focus to 'the twin', what it is to be an identical being, to in essence, share an identity with your double. We explore the worldwide fascination with twins: in terms of the pop culture fixation of the 'evil-twin', the depths of the twin in folklore
(the Doppelganger) 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 performance of our self-portraits we illustrate the relevance of such an evocative motif in the context of a culture still fixated on
the individual."
