Graham Eatough and Graham Fagen, present a screening of their most recent collaborative production The Making of Us followed by an In Conversation event with Cooper Gallery Curator Sophia Hao. Taking place at Tramway in 2012, The Making of Us was a live filmic installation that saw visitors to the gallery become ‘extras’ as the live production developed.
Theatre Director Graham Eatough and artist Graham Fagen have worked collaboratively on projects including Killing Time, DCA 2006, and The Making of Us, Tramway 2012. Graham Eatough is the Artistic Director of Suspect Culture, the theatre company he co-founded in 1992. Graham Fagen is an artist based in Glasgow and will represent Scotland for the 56th Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in 2015. Their collaborative work responds to shared preoccupations of the experience of ‘time’ and ‘place’, the relationship between the individual and society and its mediation through performance.
Taking its cue from the live improvised excitement of musical jamming, Cooper Gallery in Dundee presents Studio Jamming: Artists’ Collaborations in Scotland; the first discursive survey to foreground the grassroots character of artists’ collaboration that has contributed to the remarkable achievements of contemporary art in Scotland. Among the highlights of Studio Jamming is the presentation of works from artists’ collaborative groups including Graham Eatough & Graham Fagen, Full Eye, GANGHUT and Henry VIII’s Wives. The artists’ collaborative groups occupy the Studio Jamming Hub, a structural intervention designed by Studio Miessen, for a week each to present new works and events between 30 June – 2 August.
