Project statement: Canvey Island is famous for being below sea level, for it’s devastating flood, for being the birthplace of Dr Feelgood, for Essex-ness and for it’s omni-present dominating sea wall.

Josh Wright (b.1993, High Wycombe) and Guillaume Vandame (b. 1991, New York), collectively known as Wright & Vandame, live and work in London. Central to their practice, the artists explore the possibilities of collaboration and audience engagement through lively participatory art, performance, photography, video, sculpture and installation. In particular the artists are especially interested in interrogating questions of authorship and ownership, areas of expertise, and the role of artist.
