When did you first meet?
So, the first time we actually talked, the first time we were in the same space, was in a jacuzzi; but I was wasted so it doesn’t count.
It definitely counts.
I just remember very clearly at Miami Art Basel setting where everything is just kind of a party and blurred and blah, blah, blah; and being like, there’s this really funny moment, and there’s this guy; and I was out there with another friend. Krit was the only other person out at 4:00 a.m. He was having this moment with himself, and I felt intrusive to his moment, but I also was a little bit like, he felt intrusive to my moment with my friend. He was in the jacuzzi like–give me your glasses. I’m in the jacuzzi, and here’s the edge; and I could just see the hair in the water flip over. It was really beautiful, actually. And then literally one month later on my birthday, we performed together in a group show.
Yes. Then we started working together. I think every single time we do stuff together from then ‘til now, I pretty much have a version of something from it on video. In the piece we did in Venice together, our whole channel is a narrative built on these materials. I think it’s pretty. Then another channel is my grandfather and grandmother. I feel like there’s something really kind of long in this–different stretch of time—together in a way. I feel like for me, I like to think about how you live with living archives. The performance we do together, I think, has a lot of that. When I see the work, from my side, to put all this stuff together and figure out what we’ve been doing together but not in a text based narrative way but in a very–energy, memory, blurry space–I think we talk a lot about becoming. When you look at the past, it’s always becoming something.
