DAVY & KRISTIN MCGUIRE
The McGuires head an award winning creative studio that design unique visual experiences through art installations and theatrical projects. As well as creating bespoke projects for cultural institutions
and brands, they produce and sell their
own works through international galleries.
Davy and Kristin‘s hybrid art works are delicate, filigree fantasies built with fragile materials that are momentarily brought
to life through digital projections and
silent storytelling.Fascinated by humanity’s obsession with trying to capture, appropriate and preserve the elusive qualities of beauty and freedom, the Jam Jar Fairies series combines the tangibility of a domestic jam jar with the ephemeral illusion of projection.
Originally commissioned and developed
for the Royal Shakespeare Company as
an installation in which 8 fairies create a polyphonic composition by knocking on
the glass, the Jam Jar Fairies have now become stand alone video sculptures.
Each jar features a holographic projection
of Kristin that has been filmed and
captured by Davy.
