Graham Dolphin: 'Come Together'

'Come Together' is a newly commissioned two-channel video work that - at first glance - appears to examine the phenomenon of pop fandom. Unusually, it allows to observe both the exertions and emotions of performance and their audience's ecstatic response simultaneously. In summer 2013, Dolphin undertook an unusual type of artist's residency: one at a large-scale music festival featuring celebrated bands who have accrued devoted fans. At the festival Dolphin was given unprecedented access to groups such as Primal Scream and Spiritualized, whose lead singers we encounter in extreme closeup: we are invited to scrutinize their every gesture and expression.
