"Colquhoun & Hollingsworth
Two Ruins Steve Hollingsworth and Jim Colquhoun are Two Ruins, a collaborative investigation at the intersection of performance and sculpture. Hollingsworth and Colquhoun are both interested in those places where the boundaries between disciplines and ideas become blurred and malleable and praxis helps to further corrode these, often arbitrary, distinctions. In this performance the two artists are adrift amongst a scattering of neon tubing with proximity oscillators attached to their chests allowing them to interact with the neon not just physically but sonically. There is more than a hint of the homo-erotic as the they crawl infinitely slowly amongst the tubing, semi-naked and bending close to and straddling the light to bring forth a sonic wail that rises and falls with their movements. The deliberately ponderous movements and the overwhelming soundscape fuse to create a mesmerising mise-en-scéne, a wordless Beckettian shadow play that begins and ends in darkness.
