Donald and Robert Kinney Characteristics


Robert and Donald Kinney, identical twin brothers both of whom are gay, plot a psychoanalytical minefield of split identity in videos that remap gay sexuality within traditional narratives and melodramatic conventions. Closeted from each other while growing up, Robert studied visual art as a painter while Donald pursued training in acting and dance. The Kinney brothers adapt literary classics, cunningly using their identity as twins to present a boggling image of gendered identity, schizophrenic splintering, obsession, and the fine line between love and self-love.
