Pollyxenia Joannou and Anthony Cahill have been friends and colleagues for the past three and a half decades and despite being in close contact/discourse over this time, they have never brought their practices together in a collaborative fashion.

So, during regular discussions about their work and where each artist saw their work to be heading, it was decided that they should work on a collaboration called Red Herring.

The aim of this collaboration was to explore what they surmised to be the similarities of each other’s work when exhibited side by side having been sight unseen by the other. It was decided that a theme could be used to give connection, a starting point for the exhibition. This connection was to be based on the subject of ‘shadow’ as both artists felt an affinity to this as a concept and hence, Red Herring was born.

Joannou and Cahill settled on a format, proceeded to their studios and over the past twelve months have produced this body of work.
