Graham Fagen

The multi-media work of Scottish artist Graham Fagen draws from a number of historical and cultural references, particularly theatrical movements and strategies. His piece Peek-A-Jobby, 1998, arguably his most well know, is based around a Shakespearean device in which a pivotal action of the play takes place off-stage, allowing the audience to imagine the specifics. Addressing themes such as slavery, the cultural influences of music, nature and the symbolic power of flowers, and urban planning and regeneration, Fagen explores his conceptual points of departure through sculpture, drawing, printmaking, filmmaking, installation and performance.


Fagen has shown in a number of solo exhibitions and created commissions including, Artspace, San Antonio, Texas, The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, and The Imperial War Museum. Group shows include the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, the 2003 Venice Biennale, and British Art Show 5, UK touring exhibition. Since 1995 he has lectured at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee. The artist will represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2015.
