    Abstract

    In Camera is a collaborative research project with visual artist Graham Fagen and theatre director Graham Eatough. It looks at public behavior when viewing or taking part in visual art, theatre and film. The project focuses on perception and preconception when viewing each discipline. In Camera marks a new chapter in their research collaboration by establishing a unique event, functioning in the space between the disciplines.

    The unwritten rules of viewing for each discipline become confused and uncertain, leaving the audience to question where their physical place should be, while at the same time realizing that they, as viewers, are influencing the aesthetic and meaning of the artwork.

    For In Camera, the two artists draw their inspiration from theatre and literature classics, such as Anouilh’s La Belle Vie and Sartre’s Huis Clos. They stage a complex multi media installation for the visiting public to explore what is fact and what is fiction.

    Once again Graham Fagen deals with the subject of how social organisation deeply affect human behavior. The scenes of everyday life, in their banal and private aspects, serve as a canvas for the artist to question the dynamics at work in human nature.

    This unique project was the result of an invitation to exhibit at the Panorama at La Friche, Marseille by the curating organization Le Cartel and Sextant et Plus in Marseille. The exhibition and research was funded by Le Cartel, Sextant et Plus and Glasgow City Council.
