Details

Mirza & Butler's Where A Straight Line Meets A Curve, first began as a visual transcription of the early feminist novel Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, which through the process of collaboration with the sound artist David Cunningham, developed into an epic meditation on the nature of pictorial space within experimental film. This theme is achieved simply by showing how the daily passage of light, hitting the walls of a small white painted room, can transform its geometry into a complex shifting field of dematerialised colour, space and light.

Mirza & Butler recently exhibited work at Monika Spruth Philomene Magers, London, the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, Kunsthaus, Zurich, Architecture and Film Biennale, Graz, the Serpentine Pavilion and at the Thomas Dane Gallery, London. They are also founders of the artist film production space, no.w.here and currently live and work in London.
