Video interview with artists Broomberg and Chanarin

By Spear's

Josh Spero meets a Contemporary art pairing who have turned DNA into a tapestry

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing artists Broomberg and Chanarin for a new Spear’s TV series, in association with art advisers OQ Contemporary.

Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin are a South African duo who make work across media, including installations, sculptures, textiles and even by exposing photographic paper to the Afghan sunshine during a deployment alongside the British army.

Their show at Lisson Gallery has just closed but they also have a tapestry on display at the Freud Museum in Hampstead, where we met for our interview. The tapestry is called ‘Every piece of dust on Freud’s couch’ and visualises the DNA Freud’s patients left on the couch.

You can watch the video here.
