Like Warhol's Screen tests, this video is unscripted and took place with no direction. The video recorder on the desktop computer was simply turned on. The artists knew they were being filmed - which magnified certain performative tendencies, while adding degrees of voyeurism to the piece.
Unlike Warhol's Screen tests, this piece was (obviously) heavily edited.
Kandis is represented by Night Gallery in LA and has shown at Frieze, London. Jordan is represented by Anat Ebgi Gallery, LA and had a solo booth at Frieze NY in 2018. Both lived in Berlin during the “aughts.”
