The New York–based duo’s latest exhibition of lighting and furniture looks inward, providing a darkly comedic take on the “toil” of production as a working artist. Cultural reference points for the collection span Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker (a cult, Soviet-era sci-fi flick), Japan’s post-war, biomimetic, Metabolism architecture, and even the sanitariums that had all but shuttered by the mid-20th century. The result is a spartan series of polyethylene and foam furniture and polychromatic lighting that creates a cloistered universe from which to contemplate what it means to have a life in the race to social, intellectual, financial, and creative fulfillment.
