The Lake Twins at Turner’s House
A new interpretation of JMW Turner as artist and architect Turner’s House, Twickenham
During the summer of 2015 The Lake Twins were artists in residence at Turner’s House in Twickenham. Enticed by the symmetry of Turner’s House when they first visited, the twins spent days in the house creating a drawing installation that focused on the symmetry and a new, re-imagined space. Symmetry was depicted visually in the drawings, the installation, and also dictated the way in which the work was made on site, always side by side.

‘TWO’ documented The Lake Twins practice to date and explored their curiosity concerning the unspoken intimacy between them, what they perceive to be a unified consciousness. The twins created drawings independently but used the same images, so that when the drawings were brought together the details could be observed with comparison. The Lake Twins therefore used the process of drawing as a means of discovering how similar their perceptions are, to observe how closely they think and perceive the subject.

Similarly to the drawings exhibited in ‘TWO’, The Lake Twins created a work that encourages viewers to look for similarities and differences in what they encounter. The drawings were created independently but side by side so that the details can be observed with comparison.
