    gethan&myles make works in a variety of public spaces, including parks, bars and swimming pools, which encourage people to reassess both their environment and themselves. As an artistic double-act, collaboration lies at the heart of their practice, not only with each other but also with the people who occupy and ‘control’ the spaces in which they work. Their work is often performative, with theatrical elements that encourage participation through making and play. The subverting of rules and expectations is key to their practice, which often results in surprise interventions in otherwise familiar settings.

    “A sense of humour and a sense of wonder underpin everything we do. We share an old fashioned belief that through art we can trick people into being better.”

    Recent works include: ‘The Hunt’, which encouraged a re-examination of the local in Herne Hill; ‘Pulgar Libre’ at the ICA; ‘Altered Reality Realities’ at the Latitude Festival and ‘Passages’, which transformed the tunnel under Herne Hill Station with the help of 274 tunnel users.
