Dennis Isou is a pseudonym for artistic collaboration between the two Newcastle based artists Mark Bleakley and Josh Wilson. As a fictional character Isou is a mode of thinking between the two artists, conceptualised through a correspondence of fictional writing that develops parallel to exhibited films, installation and performances.

They used their time with Birmingham’s A3 Project Space and the School of Art working with a sound artist and an actor, developing their recent work A Crack in the Window, into an informal, table top performance. This was followed by a publication launch on their return to Newcastle.
