Bristol-based duo Paul Harrison and John Wood could be described as an art-world equivalent to Laurel and Hardy. In this film the artists invite TateShots to meet them at their studio.
Their videos, showing their dead-pan antics as they dangle precariously from a ladder, slide on office chairs around the back of a moving van, and submit themselves to a drenching from dozens of watering cans, are both hilarious and thought provoking.
