Larry and Debby Kline artists and provocateurs – installation, performances, and other works

Call and Response and Response

Call and Response and Response is a project that investigates our collaboration by isolating our individual contributions.  It is also the first in which our collaboration is the dominant subject matter of the artwork.  Each work consists of the CALL statement, and 2 RESPONSE drawings. The “CALL” occurs when one of The Klines asks the other partner to draw “something”.  Once that drawing is finished, the person who issued the CALL creates a second drawing (in RESPONSE to the first drawing).  We alternate who initiates the CALL.  The result of this project reinforces the manner in which we feed off of each other’s ideas.  It also emphasizes the continued spirit of play and the duality that guides many of our projects.
