Wickerham & Lomax
Wickerham & Lomax is the collaborative name of Baltimore-based artists Malcolm Lomax (b. Abbeville, South Carolina, 1986) and Daniel Wickerham (b. Columbus, Ohio, 1986). Formerly known as DUOX, the two have been working together since 2009. They have developed a searching, nuanced practice that applies a keen critical intuition and fine-tuned irreverence to the problems and potentialities of our contemporary media ecology. Working across diverse media (sculpture, installation, websites, prints, video, performance), curatorial platforms, and institutional contexts, they have created a body of work at once context-specific and broadly engaged with networked virtualities. Currently focused on the deviation from the digital space to the physical space, they have developed a digital narrative franchise entitled BOY’Dega, which considers the dissolving hierarchy between actor, author, fan, and character. Here, as in much of their work, supplementals are foregrounded, allowing them to meditate on obsolescence, trends, connectivity, and marginality. Wickerham & Lomax are particularly invested in questions of identity and the body, exploring the impact—profound, ubiquitous, ambivalent—of digital technologies and social spaces on the formation of subjectivities and speculative corporealities.
