Hunt & Darton are a Live Art Collaboration between Jenny Hunt and Holly Darton. They have both practiced Art since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2003 and been Working together for 7 years. Approaching Live Art from a Fine Art background we work across mediums with a sculptural approach to performance, choreographing words and movement in a sensory way and setting up alternative spaces – often creating installations to perform within. Our work derives from our shared celebrations and anxieties surrounding life choices particularly as women, in Britain, now. Our work has been described as deadpan and absurd, often collapsing into humour. We have a persistent fetish within our practice to consistently re-assess our relationship with our audience, embracing awkward moments, risk taking and constantly trying to close the gap between performer and viewer opting for a raw, underdone, conversational aesthetic. Hunt & Darton are associate artists at Artsadmin and Cambridge Junction.
