E + E – Elsa James & Eve Wright

E+E are Essex-based visual artists Elsa James and Eve Wright, who have come together to form a new collaboration. They intend to use their 5 month residency at Metal Southend as a ‘think tank’ to research, explore and develop ideas which comment on their identities as being black and British, with Caribbean parents tracing their heritage to Africa.

They hope to draw from a wide range of resources, materials and ideas including memory, reimagining, archival historical moments and collections. They plan to explore ideas through drawing, performance in the public domain, video, collage and photography.
