Since 2010 multidisciplinary artists Honey Long and Prue Stent have worked together across photography, performance, installation and sculpture. Spontaneous and playful, their art centres on a fascination with gender and the body, and seeks to undermine notions of the passive female. Interested in the poetics and symbolism which arise from material and bodily processes, feelings of transience, permeability and transmutation permeate much of their work. They employ the body and unconventional materials to distort and fragment the bodily form, often with unexpected outcomes. Dreamy, fluid, saccharine, gritty and fleshy, Long and Stent challenge and captivate audiences with powerful imagery that crosses the subversive and the surreal.
