Honey Long and Prue Stent’s practice merges photographic and sculptural disciplines. Grounded in experimentation between bodies, materials and environments, there is a pervasive desire to play with and entangle these spheres- seeking a greater sense of connection to them. Informed by processes of foraging and chance encounters, often cultural debris become reconfigured within a fluid and dreamy context, triggering subconscious associations while also aiming to avoid classification.

Drinking from the screen, 2021
Softening into bodily sensations and natural processes, Drinking from the screen is a meditation on longing for the more than human world and our increasing dependence on computer screens as a means of connection. Intended as a massage for the eyes, the artists press their bodies up against glass and try to connect to watery environs. Reaching out with thirsty mouths, feet and bellies, the processes of the body and landscape speak to each other whilst at the same time the screen remains in between, mediating a space which feels unbridgeable.
