The hand painted guitars, banners, costumes, posters and video/photographic documentation form a visual archive, which is often displayed at their performances. 39 is a project space that invites artists to respond to a request in order to construct a collaborative installation. Shows have involved asking participants to build a bird box through to painting pub signs.

Recent solo exhibitions include Dumb Tings, Coleman Projects, London (2008) (collaboration with Stephen Dunne); Nos Cunctus Comitatus Nod, 39, London (collaboration with Alan Miller) (2005) and group exhibitions include Parkhaus, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany (2008) and Chaime Soutine, Happy Sailor Tattoo Parlour and Barbican Centre, London (2004).
