Lyeberry #23: Contact

A video installation by John Birtle and Paul Pescador. 

Contact is a video montage of the artists propelling merchandise at one another. These simple gestures range from violent to seductive, and are often reminiscent of slapstick comedy. The physical objecthood of the merchandise becomes an instrument for bodies to interact as they explore the intimacy of collaboration within the landscape of commerce.
