Luzgina McShane 

Mike McShane and Ekaterina Luzgina are an artist duo based in London. Originating from the UK and Russia respectively, they are interested in miscommunication and the potential to transcend fixed meanings within language. By translating typographic forms into the language of sculpture and architecture they aim to animate and transform words and letters into actors in space. They want to reinstate the ambiguity and playful possibilities that exists in the spoken word but less so in the written. They look to create a kind of spatial poetry, where different material, gestural and written languages fuse to create fragments that float in and out of conscious
understanding.

Mike McShane & Ekaterina Luzgina graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2016. They have recently finished a residency Text As and a solo show Physical Phenomena, at Campbell Works (2019).
