Formerly resident in the Emirate of Sharjah, UAE, both artist couples have focused on a common theme in their work: the notion of an itinerant art practice built on responses to shifts and movements in moving through and living within different context within the Global Village. Notions of home, homeland and material utopias seek to explain the response to garner a sense of identity and space. The four artists' work explores and underscores through relationship the commonalities, differences and uniqueness in artistic practice.
