For the past 10 years Australian artists Honey Long and Prue Stent have worked together, developing a practice which traverses photography, moving image, performance, installation and sculpture.
Long and Stent’s long standing friendship is reflected in their process which is grounded in experimentation, play, cross-pollination/fertilization and curiosity. Continuously exploring the body as a bridge between the personal and the cultural, their work unsettles reductive binaries placed on the female body and the more-than-human world.
Interested in the poetics and symbolism which arise from material and bodily processes, feelings of transience, permeability and transmutation permeate much of their work. They have a pervasive desire to engage with and entangle the fields of body, object and landscape- revealing uncanny relationships and sites of commonality. Dreamy, fluid, saccharine, gritty and fleshy, Long and Stent challenge and captivate audiences with powerful imagery that crosses the subversive and the surreal.
