This catalogue essay descrbes the work of video artist Lisa Steele and

Kim Tomczak, since they began working together in 1983. The subjects

of the body and  contemporary corporeality, youth and anxiety,

interrogative art practices, and physical contingencies of the body

are discussed by the author. The "grammar" and style of Steele and

Tomczak are also described as always leading to the creation of work

that questions, and poses challenges for the audience.
