matthews AND allen are collaborative artists. Their practice is one of critical disruption, performance writing and a ludic approach to language.

They are converse and they converse, they are deliberate and they deliberate, they are appropriate and they appropriate, they are alternate and they alternate, they are contrary and contrary, they are content and content; they are all, they are both, they are many and they are double.
