Michael Watson and Jade Yumang are a collaborative duo chosen to exhibit in the Governors Island Art Fair in New York, NY in September 2012. Their first exhibition as a collaborative team, Watson and Yumang converted a room into a surreal funeral home installation about the life and death of conjoined twins. This visual narration speaks of the complexity of individual liberty, dissatisfaction, loneliness, familial ties, and chosen families.
