For over a decade, the bright yellow warehouse has been home to Pump Project where rotating exhibitions have welcomed contemplation, experimental practice and community. Pump is overjoyed to present The Door by the Garden as the last show held in the space. Exhibition contains mature content which may not be suitable for children. Discretion is advised. A family friendly closing party will take place post exhibition.
We strip out of our hides and run wild.
Wet and bare skin rubbing against one another.
We devour ourselves and each other.
Our pelts, abandoned and willfully discarded, hang from the ceiling.
Eat us, eat from us.
They enter through the exit and run out through the entrance.
Water floods the tunnel where nothing grows.
This water that does not wash.
Let me have you, let me eat you.

Both received a BFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin. Their work centers around the experience of shifting between girlhood and womanhood within the ambiguity of gender. Their work stages fantastical scenes of domestic comfort in which objects and figures become characters with inevitable roles to play in seduction and repulsion
