Design of the communication materials and integrated campaign for Douglas Gordon’s Portrait of Janus (divided states), commissioned by Locus+.
Douglas Gordon’s work uses the demarcation line of Korea’s Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), the strip of land separating North and South Korea, to trace a literal and metaphorical boundary. “Gordon’s work is not about nationalism but, in part, physical frontiers as psychological metaphors. At this moment in time, Portrait of Janus is highly prescient” Jon Bewley, Director Locus+.
To mark the UK Premiere of Douglas Gordon’s Portrait of Janus (divided states) Two were commissioned to design the communication materials and integrated campaign. Commissioned by Locus+ and screened in Derry, in partnership with Void Gallery, with a live performance by Okkyung Lee. Part of the Korea/UK 2017-18 official programme.
