A talk with Jane Penny, TOPS’s vocalist, at her home back in Montreal
Artist duo Eric Bassleer, aka Mon Colonel, and Thomas Stiernon, aka Spit, showcasing at the BPS22 this month have developed over drawings and installations the expression of disruptive thinking. Produced collectively, their work consists of watercolours on paper brimming over with words, sentences and drawings drawn from their daily lives, using the same elements in their ceramics too. With Polaroid photographs they tell their everyday lives, and work as additional, less known, aspect to their work, illustrating another facet of their universe. This production reveals with casualty and humour one of the duo’s inspirations, offering a new entryway inside their minds.
