Ryan Trecartin and Lizzie Fitch’s sculpture-theatreis the scenery for a series of films – videos that you might think had been shot with mobile telephones for posting on social network sites. These artists, with their complete mastery of today’s technology and in a riot of noise and visual effects, tell the story of their generation – one that is more interested in the reactions of the audience than in the film being shown, a generation for whom the idea of private life no longermakes sense and who think of life as an enormousstage-set. Situated somewhere between snuff moviesand scenes from reality TV, shows and social networks,Trecartin and Fitch’s work has such a comic side to it, with its ultra-rapid editing, syncopation, and amputated dialogue, that it ends up putting a certain distance between it self and the spectator. The fact that you come across these images in an installation rather than on YouTube is a strong hint not to take them atface value – in spite of their very obvious “reality”.
