Since 2003, creative collaborative Kevin Broughton and Fiona Birnie have used photography, computer manipulation, site-specific immersive installations and painting to construct alternate realities. These dystopian landscapes question the impact technology has had – and continues to have – on the systems and structures we use to navigate, classify, and define our world.
A conceptual approach and collage aesthetic threads through their recent work. The duo explore internet browsing via disparate fragmentation, colliding visual narratives, and graphic paint marks. The resulting expressionistic images – harnessed from collaborative unplanned edits and erasures – become metaphors for contemporary life and modern states of mind.
Broughton and Birnie have shown works at Thames-side Studio Gallery, Rum Factory Project Space, The Crypt Gallery, The Portico Library Gallery, Saatchi Gallery, and the Royal College of Art. They also have pieces in collections in the USA, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and the UK, including at the Royal College of Art in London.
