Locust Projects, in partnership with Artists in Residence in Everglades (AIRIE), is pleased to present a site-specific installation by the New York-based collaborative duo Wade Kavanaugh & Stephen B. Nguyen. Known for undulating installations of twisted and gnarled paper that engulf spaces and surround the viewer, Kavanaugh and Nguyen will create an immersive three-dimensional drawing based on their impressions of the Everglades, where they are AIRIE artists in residence. Their practice focuses on the collaborative process itself, resulting in abstractions of the entangled mangrove roots, waving sawgrass, and muscular storm clouds of the Everglades waterscape.

Kavanaugh and Nguyen have collaborated since 2005. The artists regard the collaborative process as a platform to articulate the collective processing of what they see, and probe the visual foundations of perception and imagination. The resulting work is a conflation of the two artists’ perception of the same phenomena.
