Abstract

'In Camera' was created for the Panorama gallery at La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille by Graham Eatough and Graham Fagen in 2014. The work draws on and extends their approaches from previous collaborative works exploring ideas of theatricality in the visual arts whilst providing a response to the physical context and location of the unique Panorama gallery space and the city of Marseille in which it is situated. Thematically, In Camera deals with ideas of confinement and spectatorship, bringing together references from the world of theatre (in particular Sartre’s play 'Huis Clos' and Jean Anouilh’s television drama 'La Belle Vie') with the formal elements of a T.V. studio and ‘reality T.V.’ and soap opera formats. The project is a part of Graham's ongoing practice as research into the 'theatrical turn' in the visual arts. The exhibition opened on August 30th 2014.
