DUOX seems to work best under both time and space constraints. Selected by Sue Spaid from local gallery Open Space as one of its three nominees for Liste, Lomax and Wickerham were given a project room of approximately 11-feet-by-22-feet and only a few weeks from notification to exhibition to make the work for the show. “We weren’t even sure at the beginning of May what we were going to do for the Liste,” Wickerham writes. In the limitations of the small project space, the skill and adroitness of these two young artists was focused into three pieces: a video projection and two sculptures. Taking into consideration Liste’s quick turnaround, the late May opening, and the museum’s lack of air conditioning, DUOX created “Ice Purses,” which melted with a satisfying quickness during the opening and first day of the show. The purses themselves were two giant cubes of ice, with various objects (mouthwash, key chains, cell phones, CDs, etc.) frozen within, suspended from an engine hoist. As they melted, items would fall from them into a (fishless) fish tank below. Beneath the table, elements from past installations, zebra print and keychains, reappeared in a minimal arrangement.
