They Are Here is a collective practice steered by Harun Morrison and Helen Walker. The duo have worked together since 2005, often extending their collaboration to include others in the development of an artwork or its delivery. They Are Here’s works can be read as a series of games that offer alternative ways of engaging with a situation, history or ideology.
They Are Here will use the Artists’ Studio to extend their ongoing enquiry into personal, collective and institutional memory, taking the Garman Ryan Collection as a starting point for the creation of new work. Drawing on the history of certain objects, the duo will explore the idea of ‘lost’, forgotten and damaged works, coming together with Gallery audiences to consider the more specific and personal ways that loss might be manifested.
Look out for an invitation to interact with They Are Here during the months of November and December.
