Joe Borez & James Laming

Joe Borez (El Borez)  and James Laming (Jim Dour) are the two middle aged operators of the project to find the cholesterolly battered heart whose arrhythmic palpitation manages to keep some sense of existence alive on the fringe of the Dorset coastline. This wish is achieved by the Portland Lookalike Agency. Despite almost everything a fragile flame of hope refuses to be extinguished. This wisp of energy is protected like a truly cute kitten whose ambition is to return to the quarry, feral, hunting rats and moths.

“ It is essentially a fictitious lookalike agency located on Portland, its a kind of vehicle for us to express our annoyance with micro situations and bigger ones” Joe Borez
