Clarissa Rose Peppers & Nick Hay
LOVERBABIES is a collection of video work by Clarissa Rose Peppers & Nick Hay that investigates the dialogue of two artists collaborating in art-making as they do domestically, in love. The grouping was conceived as a representation of the life that they share together with their young son. It presents instances of cooperation and opposition, affection and disdain, as well as attraction and repulsion. These dichotomies are inherent in every intimate relationship and ultimately result in tangible outcomes not unlike the process of making art.
