Selected work 2010 - 2011
A site inspired performance
The Lake Twins became interested in creating site-specific work when they started Central Saint Martins in 2009. What appealed to them about Severndroog castle was the symmetry of the castle façade; on one façade there are two turrets, twin turrets. They decided to create a performance piece that documented their connection with this site; the mirrored identity of the castle façade with their own, mirrored identity as mirror twins.
Vital Attachment became a series of work that explored connection.
Billingsgate Fish Market
2010 was the start of an ongoing desire to project two identities onto one being and a continuing interest in site-specific work that began in 2009.
The Lake Twins created a video installation depicting a performance on two facing projection screens. The work responded to the connection and unity between two of Valentines mansions early residents, Robert Surman (1724-1754) and Charles Raymond (1754-1788). Sounds recorded in various locations connected to the early residents were brought into the space to unite past and present.
