Artist Profile: Jay Miriam and Zev
Jay Miriam and Zev have been collaborating since 2008.
Our work explores the relationship between new class identities and life as performance.
With influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and John Lennon, new tensions are crafted from both mundane and transcendent discourse.
Ever since we were postgraduates we have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of relationships. What starts out as yearning soon becomes debased into a manifesto of power, leaving only a sense of undefined and the chance of a new order.
As shifting phenomena become clarified through emergent and personal practice, the viewer is left with an impression of the corners of our existence.
