And Full Moon is a video that the two made in Moscow and St Petersburg in December last year. Although the artists come from two diverse cultures, the exhibition is not about this disparity.

‘Growing up in Gdansk, Paulina has a very different take on this romanticism towards Eastern European nostalgia,‘ says McKenzie. ‘My view of the East is perhaps similar to her view of the West. But what is important with the show is that we‘re not trying to illustrate the differences between us, it’s really about us as a close unit.’ (Helen Monaghan)
