About

Joanne Tatham & Tom O?Sullivan have worked collaboratively since 1995, creating works that are choreographed situations; using objects, text, images and performance to consider and critique the status,
value and role of contemporary art. These works are made in direct response to the situations within which the artists are invited to work, whilst maintaining and acknowledging the artists? roles as ambivalent
outsiders. Recent works have considered, in particular, how contemporary art can be expected to function in an instrumentalised role in relation to the diverse agendas of both the public and commercial realms. Their works often use text in performed, spoken or published form with, in many ways, their sculptures acting as necessary foils within these wider configurations.
