The striking collaboration between Lang’s sculptures incorporating sound and light, and Alati’s two dimensional flows of mixed media on drafting film reflects the artists’ mutual obsession with creating distorted visions of human flesh, offering a landscape that delves into its fluctuating, unpredictable, and naturally messy states. Both artists admit the work could be seen as “unnerving”.
Despite working in different mediums, the pair discovered common ground resulting in a unique collaboration of works.
“I discovered Sheila’s work on the Arts Tasmania website, and thought that visually it shared a lot of similarities between my work, so I shot her an email and asked whether she would want to come to Sydney and do a show together,” Lang explains. “After emailing back and forth for a while discussing our work and ideas it became clear that we work together really well and share the same preoccupations with the body that we express in different ways.”
