John Wood and Paul Harrison

John Wood and Paul Harrison make screen-based works that often manipulate familiar objects, giving rise to imaginative associations.

"John Wood and Paul Harrison have been collaborating for 10 years. There isn't an obvious word for what they do together. They are performance artists, of sorts. Their work is always a video piece, never a live show. Its look is minimalist. It partly suggests the controlled experiments of conceptual art - but equally the slapstick routines of physical comedy. "Sculptural pratfalls" is about right."

Tom Lubbock, Independent Review, 2003
