Yoke and Zoom are artists Nina Coulson and Alex Johnson, who work from home on the Malvern Hills in the UK and Internationally. Yoke and Zoom’s practice combines universal concerns with domestic private moments. Instigating collaborations and making interventions in public space and working with galleries in the urban and rural context. Encouraging better communication between people and questioning the aesthetics and politics of art production, distribution and consumption in public and private realms.
Work is produced in a self-directed, situationist manner and artworks may involve any manner of methods of production including collection and re-distribution, restoration and re-appropriation of everyday objects into sculpture, drawing and painting, film making and food-sharing. Yoke and Zoom encourage communality and explore rituals, survivalism, counter cultures, mobile architecture, alternative living systems and the relationship between culture and nature in contemporary society, artworks are intermittently woven with folklore, myth and magic. To work with Yoke and Zoom is to inquire into universal concepts of family, play, sharing, rootedness and mobility within social, relational and historical contexts
