Fermented Ink (Vol.2)
Two bodies crawl out slowly from the primordial basin surfacing on a white scorched savanna of being. Parched their existence is a twisted unknown, undefined in its origin. They have slipped from our perception as we regard the space they inhabit, that ice plain, dizzying light. That past, that future but already they aren't nothing. A language is forming deep down in the marrow, an ecology in the microbes and molecules, a relationship of trust and fear. Call it something, call it sound and silence, life and death, hot and cold, love and loss: any can be the case and yet none of these yins and yangs tell the whole story. What we feel, that enveloping whiteness at the edges of imagination, the here and now, is our evolution, a stark and lonely present.
McCulloch and Black often perform solo, creating intermedia works, in performance, dance, installation and writing. Black's work is visually engaging, precise and plays with poetic though often grotesque, subversive imagery. McCulloch's is anarchic and humorous, often involving the audience in constructed rituals. They have presented work in the UK, Lithuania, Germany and Chile. Fermented Ink is an ongoing project by the duo concerned with the ecology of a duet; it was initially presented at BUZZCUT in 2015 and further developed at the BUZZCUT Residency, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
