mikel durlam + monty j: far from home

Mikel Durlam and Monty J collaborated on a special collection of living sculptures for their recent show at Greenpoint Hill.  Their work defies categorization, synthesizing elements of design, visual poetry and surrealism. Working together in a communal studio space in Brooklyn, Durlam and Monty J have created an ethereal collection of objects that connect the viewer to the terrestrial world while also fostering dreams of another one, far from home.
