Andrew Bearnot and Joshua Kent are artists who are lovers

Joshua Kent and Andrew Bearnot are lovers who are artists.

Though both work independently, for ᗡOUBLEHEADED they attempt the cohesion of a single exhibition which thematizes twoness and the murky zones between defined states.

How does the double-headed creature share a heart? Or an apartment?
Or, “You had the car keys last–check your pants pocket.”

For ᗡOUBLEHEADED, Bearnot and Kent explore ways in which matter registers the experience of time: from the instantaneous ejaculation of confetti, to the gradual process of hair growing gray. Scales of time and attention are modulated throughout Bearnot and Kent’s object based work, opening up opportunities for noticing:

A marble statue kisses his own image across the pages of a book.
An ombre rope registers transition, revealed by contrasting ends.

The space between a first kiss and a fissure.
