collectif_fact uses the language of films to manoeuvre and influence their interpretation of everyday life images. Their videos are often a collage of ordinary, recognisable images edit to examine film tropes, mechanisms of storytelling and the grammar of suspense. These are not concerned with staging everyday life but choreograph its performance. Alan Magee’s method of production, undertakes a series of actions that are often analogous to that of a factory or working environment aiming to create functional objects. However, through this process, he purposefully distorts their use into something else, operating a transfer of values as they shift from common object to work of art.
For the residency and exhibition at Coleman Project Space collectif_fact and Alan Magee will focus on these themes and ways of working. Thinking of ‘everyday life’, not simply at the name given to a reality available for scrutiny, but also as the name of life that lies hidden.They will investigate how their work can be experienced together; looking at the specificity of each project (sculpture, videos) and consider how they can be either merged, exhibited as narrative journey or influenced by each other.
