Gabriella & Silvana Mangano


If … so … then, is drawn from the Mangano sisters childhood experiences of their intimate communication and almost telepathic connection. Filmed face-to-face the twins fluently draw around the periphery of each others body. At once inaccessible and peculiarly tender their intense hypnotic performance mimics the repetition of learning a new language. Layered and rich in associations this video work engages notions of language, gesture, drawing and architecture.
