Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard met and began working collaboratively in 1993. They graduated together from Goldsmiths in 1995 and a day later were exhibiting in one of the late Joshua Compston’s now legendary Shoreditch art events.

Their process-led practice was kick-started when they conceived and began publishing the object- based magazine Words & Pictures - Ultra-Paranoid (Extra-Spatial) Portable Art! in 1994.

An interdisciplinary approach to art, music, mediation and liveness has led to their continued engagement with the soundtrack underpinning contemporary life. Their universal yet highly personal strategies play out ideas of memory, performance and the mediated image in a challenging but highly accessible body of work.

They are pioneers of the current trend exploring re- enactment as an artistic genre. Since The World Won’t Listen, their first live project in 1996, to their critically acclaimed A Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide and, more recently, their film File under Sacred Music, they have had the timing and insight to key into contemporary society’s increasing engagement with simulation and artifice as a vital part of cultural and emotional expression.

For their recent solo show at Kate MacGarry, Iain and Jane recreated Vito Acconci's 'Walk Over (Indirect Approaches', working closely with Plan B, a young MC recently signed to 679 Recordings, to update the script and re-shoot the video liberally adopting the style and aesthetic of urban music videos.

Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard are represented by Kate MacGarry.
