Joshua and Zakary Sandler are New York based artists who come from distinct creative backgrounds. Joshua studied photography and video, (Pratt MFA), and his brother Zak trained in experimental theater and modern performance, (MA University College Dublin). As teenagers, they began collaborating on photography projects. Their early works documented the fantasy, inhibition, and intimacy shared between family and close friends. As adults, Josh and Zak make videos that examine the line drawn between adolescent and adult behavior, and the dysfunction that often ensues when adults try to hold on to feelings of idealistic hope and youthful indiscretion. They aim to capture a general state of alienation, and the protective worlds people create in the midst of oppressive or tumultuous circumstances. Their work has been described as “dysfunctional family theatre”. They have had solo exhibitions internationally, most recently in Canada and Slovenia and are represented by Gallerywest in Toronto. Their website is www.joshandzak.com.
