That's My Side

Koh-i-noor is proud to present the video, That’s my Side
by Renee Gertler and Josh Greene.

That's My Side is a collaboration between San Francisco based artists (and married couple) Renee Gertler and Josh Greene. For this exhibition in Copenhagen Gertler and Greene are making a video that takes collaboration as its subject. As a married couple nearly every aspect of their lives are fused. But despite the fact that they are both artists, the work that they each do is distinctly separate and their own. Of course they regularly consult each other for aesthetic and conceptual advice, but they do not collaborate. Until now that is.

That's My Side forces Gertler and Greene to take a look at their individual practices and figure out how they may fuse them into one coherent exhibition. Over the course of several months they have been having extended discussions via email and Gmail chat about how they can possibly collaborate. At times the dialogue has been tense and frustrating, yet also revealing of where they each are in regards to their careers at this particular moment.

Gertler and Greene have taken these emails and Gmail chats and used them as the basis for a dramatization of the conversation that they have been having. The video, That's My Side will feature the Danish actors, Penille Albæk Andersen and Jakob Knudsen from the Statens Teater Skole playing the roles of Gertler and Greene. The video will be in Danish with English subtitles.
