Artist Statement

“‘I’ve grown tired of your company, I wish you would go away, I need a moment to myself, could you please be quiet.’

After years of living with someone, these are things that we often think about when our ‘other’ walks into the room. What if we were no longer polite, what if domestic politics took over our house, what if we could simply employ the tactics of our childhood to gain that needed isolation? Me, Mine, and not Yours is the resulting installation and videos created by our antiheroes who playfully make suggestions and recommendations of isolationist tactics that anyone can employ to gain some alone time.”
