Following a chance encounter on a soggy south-London zip-line in 2008, Gethan Dick (Irish) and Myles Quin (Irish-ish), have spent the intervening period working together — and with others. From these collaborations a varied, many-headed project has been spawned: a body of work built in response to the real world, and in an unfailing relationship to experiences and stories, lived and shared with others. Participation and collaboration are at the heart of their approach — and of the works resulting from it. Their projects are the stories of territories traversed and people met. Whether intervening on landscapes or interacting with people’s behaviors, they strive to build bridges between art and life, arousing questions and emotions; inviting the public to “re-see” and reassess. Through their installations, films, sculptures and books, gethan&myles celebrate the capacity of art to enrich our understanding of — and feeling for — the real. Their work has been supported by international institutions including: Barbican, British Library, ICA, Wellcome Trust (GB); Fondation Van Gogh, Frac-PACA, Louvre-Lens, Ministère de la Culture, MuCEM Marseille (France); eyebeam (USA); Havana Biennial (Cuba).
