Straddling the bi-cultural spectrum, the collaborations of Eugene Hansen and Marcus Williams are an inquiry into cross-cultural exchange. Transforming everyday materials - light, video, junk shop discards - into metaphorical signifiers, their work illuminates social structures than normally remain hidden. By avoiding the mythology of racial harmony suggested by their collaboration, Hansen and Williams' installations establish a dialogue between the two artists that illustrates their differences as well as their commonalties.
