Bird on the interior

by Chin Keeler and Emma Tornero

Chin Keeler and Emma Tornero work on their pieces as a team, collaborating on themes and images.

They cast their pantheon of favourite characters and creatures in an epic soap opera in which seemingly unconnected events can be traced back to an unseen framework.

Presenting story-lines of impossible geometry, they stage a theatre of illusions and trap doors, where a fisherman from the island of Terschelling can rub shoulders with John Wayne trapped inside the body of a stag trying to escape his future by becoming the son of Mies van der Rohe. Lovingly mopping up the cultural fluff from the sofa crack of our brains, they attempt to salvage the sublime from the ridiculous.
