Nadia Hironaka & Matthew Suib employ the tools and conventions of moving-image culture to offer counter-mythical visions of our contemporary world. In doing so they re-construct existing narratives and envision new images that challenge popular understandings of History and Culture. The duo’s large-scale, often immersive moving-image installations use original and appropriated imagery and unique soundtracks to invert social conventions and scramble history. Using a collage-oriented approach, Hironaka & Suib collide imagery and narratives that encompass historical fact and popular fiction, as well as speculative futures to expose and undermine the relationship between popular media and political power.
