Alison J Carr
Video Letters (Body & Voice), - 2011
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 was 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 quoted one another, conceptual and geographic distances were bridged. However, because of the conversational back and forth structure, the two artist’s identities remain recognisably distinct.
Two 'Video Letters' conversations evolved: Video Letters: Voice and Video Letters: Body. They have been shown as two separate showreels and also as one long one.
