Ellen Lesperance and Jeanine Oleson (b. 1971, 1974)
"The Off the Grid project of performance-based large format photographs was initiated in 2001. As collaborators, we want to explore the gestures and performances of survival by setting up open-ended situations in the natural landscape where we perform as the only human presences in the actual frame and perhaps the world."
-Ellen Lesperance and Jeanine Oleson
Based in New York and Maine, Lesperance and Oleson have collaborated on a number of performance-based projects. Most recently, their work was displayed in the 2-person art show, "This is Our World," at Savage Art Resources in Portland, Oregon.
