Jane and Louise Wilson


Identical twins Jane and Louise Wilson investigate institutional architectural sites that were once centers of power but have now fallen to abandonment and ruin. These images are often projected as video onto multiple screens that act as independent walls and ceiling. The structure of these connected screens serves and echoes the images of the specific architectural sites projected. The collection of these devastating images conveys a weighted sense of humanism, while also presenting stunning cinematic formalism. The artists are graduates of Goldsmith College in London (1992), and, in 1999, they were nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize, which is organized by the Tate Gallery in London. Other exhibitions include “The New Brutalists” at the Lisson Gallery (2006) and works with the Bergen Art Museum in Norway (2004). The sisters also attended the studio program of the Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst (DAAD) in Berlin.
