Whole Halves portrays various characters engaging in magic, mess and
peaceful mayhem, organized loosely around a sausage-eating ritual. It is
the first video created by Fowler and Sew Hoy’s art collaborative
project called, Two Serious Ladies. Founded three years ago, Two Serious
Ladies has experimented at the edges of photography and sculpture.
Embracing an aesthetic of chaotic feminism, the pair wrestles the
clutter of daily life into submission, gleaning new messages and
meanings from the hidden underbellies of everyday objects. Using a
combination of photographic materials, Neanderthal technologies, and
live light actions, Fowler and Sew Hoy reject the reason found in
illumination, opting instead for open, interpretive possibilities for
visual understanding. Two Serious Ladies recently received a Durfee
Foundation grant in support of their work.
This work was premiered at Human Resources in 2010, has shown at W/--Projects in New York, and Ditch Projects in Eugene, OR.
