Uma Breakdown & Alfie Strong are presenting two-person exhibition Green Fuzz at London’s Xero, Kline & Coma, opening November 10 and running to December 4.

The show explores shifting physical states and deterioration through a lens of trans-human studies and “mental health, disability and science, together with a collective admiration for mythology, folklore, fiction and horror.”

The duo, who have been working together since early 2016, work with sound, sculpture and other materials to explore language and the limits and politics of the body with a particular focus on disability.
