Eye Candy - The Jackson Twins

From the artists:

Our work pays particular focus to ‘the twin’, what it is to be an identical being – to in essence, share an identity with your double. We explore the worldwide fascination with twins: in terms of the pop culture fixation of the ‘evil-twin’, the depths of the twin in folklore (the doppelganger) and the themes explored through psychology and psychoanalysis (nature versus nurture, ESP, Frued and Rank’s theories, etc).

As identical twins, we have always been interested in exploring issues concerning identity and twinship within our artwork. Whilst working individually, we both turned separately to photography and digital media as our main tools for creating artwork. We initiated our collaboration part way through our BA studies in 2002. During this time, our efforts started to centre solely upon our own identities and we developed an interest in altering our appearance – adopting new identities as a way of compensating for ‘sharing’ a singular identity.
