The ArtNet website has an interesting write-up on experimental art duo, The Black Estate, a ‘collaboration between artists Noah MacDonald and Scott Pagano; the artists do not sign their individual names to the work, they are interested in the collaborative art-making process and the ongoing nature of their particular dialogue. The Black Estate presents a body of hauntingly beautiful and surreal video works’. ‘Darkly evocative illustrated landscapes are created in combination with cutting-edge digital animation to produce a new generation of imagined reality. Concern for the current state of our environment lies at the forefront of these works; field and tree are set in motion and take on mortal characteristics as an eerie reminder of the sacredness of nature’. Their work is currently on show at New York’s Claire Oliver Gallery until March 8th.
