About

Alison J Carr and Kerstin Honeit were brought together by LoBe, Berlin, taking part in a residency and subsequent exhibition, in 2011. As they prepared to work together they began to exchange ‘video letters'. Their only rule is that they must respond to the video letter they receive. Over the course of these conversations a shared visual language has evolved in which the commonalities and differences of their respective practices are teased out in an intimate way. As the artists technically and visually quote one another, conceptual and geographic distances are bridged. However, because of the conversational back and forth structure, the two artist's identities remain recognisably distinct. The next, and final installment of the conversation will be an exchange of ‘video postcards': their goodbye to one another, to be screened later in the year.
