Q) So....who killed Various Artist?
A) Our people are working on it, no body as yet but there are still a couple of leads to follow up.

Q) No artistís statement on your website?
A) We imagine everything one does to be a statement of sorts. Metaphorically we are a donkey tethered midpoint between two bales of straw and who starves to death because every time he goes to eat one, thinks he canít eat the other.

Q) Ok, perhaps you could tell us a little about your practice...
A) We look for the absurd in the everyday - the theatrical within an object. We like making interventions. We do tend to veer away from making objects specifically for a gallery space although it is a well laid trap and we are not always immune!

Q) You seem to quote constantly from popular culture...
A) You know how when you take a dog for a walk and the animal will run off but keep returning to see where you are - well, we are that dog!

 

Q) A signature piece we can all admire?
A) A painting is never finished, it is simply abandoned and with the author long gone. The entire history of art is littered with abandoned texts, museums are nothing more than entertainment lay-byís in a cultural blizzard of fake snow.

Q) Describe your illustrations?
A) 16th Mannerism meets 70's disco - or Bronzino versus the Village People!

Q) You're hosting a reality TV version of Jim, Dine With Me, who's invited to dinner?
A) Godot, Ubu, Hicks and Pooh
Q) Sounds a riot, no women?
A) Godot isn't a woman . . ?

Q) What would you provide by way of entertainment?
A) I'd make everyone take a lie detector test

Q) Tell us a joke.
A) I helped an army friend decorate a cake, we awarded it the Victoria sponge.

Q) And what is your super power?
A) China.
