Interdisciplinary artists Erin Ethridge(left) and Colleen Marie Foley(right) have been working together as Thorn since 2015. As a collaborative, Thorn questions ideas of shared or composite identity, memory and body. Thorn takes their relationship as subject and tool, searching for places where the physical and psychic boundaries between them soften and become permeable. They negotiate dualities of distance/closeness, pleasure/pain, self/other in pursuit of their limits. These efforts take the form of performance work, sculptural tools, and electronic media.

Thorn created Fly Down From Us during their residency.
