Thoughts on creative couples

Before I take off for the day, I thought I’d mention that I think couples (like Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein) who do “stuff” together are my favourite thing.

In the current issue of Readymade Magazine is a feature dedicated to couples who work creatively together. One of these couples is Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel, who make up the fantastic Mates of State. Listen to this band, I implore you. They are great.

Another couple who consistently do neat stuff: Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller. Their multi-media installations and “walks” are phenomenal. A few years ago, at a show at Montreal’s Musée des Arts Contemporains, I watched their Forty-Part Motet reduce two men to tears. Seriously. It was just that good.
