James and Eleanor Avery are British-born artists who now live and work in Brisbane, Australia.
The artists' installations explore the dislocated layers of order and disorder within contemporary culture. In their collaborations they use elements of a recurring visual language to build layers and to make parallels and shifts across multiple platforms. They conflate concerns within contemporary culture with historical notes. Their current world is hyper-real, a real-time stage set, cluttered with warped realities, where fictitious worlds overtake conscious actuality. James and Eleanor’s installations are an experimental investigation into our world of excess and visual overload, and how we interpret and attempt to understand it.
