Collett and Macdonald continue their working relationship as an artist couple in the latest and final installment of their 3-part installation series, Back and Forth. First exhibited in the Link Gallery and then as part of the Manchester Art Crawl, they now want to embrace their performative style in creating their concluding chapter for just one-hour as part of Mill24. Their work has developed in succession from part i, space, to part ii, sound, and now to part iii, performance. Performing Back and Forth part iiiwill act as a full stop to their working past, and form a creative platform for them to move forward from as live performers within a sculptural environment. They will move in mirrored ritual around the white-cube gallery space, now transformed into an all-new environment by its submergence in calico fabric; their strange, dance-like performance reflecting the overlapping confines and communication that make up their working relationship. Choosing to exhibit their piece at a time when the exhibition will be most quiet, the sensory deadening of sound that their abundant use of calico fabric creates, will be enhanced more than ever before. The audience’s perception of the artists and their environment will become one.
