“Nick and Sheila Pye’s marriage is hell—if their art is anything to go by, that is. The Toronto-based couple’s photographs and films, in which they are the sole performers, portray a series of elemental, absurdist tugs-of-war. Often confined to such claustrophobic spaces as bathroom stalls, the Pyes struggle persistently and wordlessly to unite—in order, perhaps, to make amends, have sex or simply tear each other limb from limb.”
