Fitch and Trecartin are acclaimed for a collaborative practice that fuses non-linear films with immersive installations. Rhizome-like narratives and an imploding dramaturgical logic characterize their film and video work. Protagonists embody fluid gender roles and forms of fragmented subjectivity in a buoyant clash of reality TV- and social-media identity tropes. The American duo is currently based in Athens, Ohio. They conceive of their installations as “sculptural theaters” in which viewers themselves become actors.
