Tales from the Trophy Room

David Campbell, Mark Durden, Ian Brown

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


With Tales from the Trophy Room, the artists’ group Common Culture bring a cabaret of new video work to Portugal. Common Culture’s use of stock characters and scenes associated with Britishness— nightclub bouncers, comedians, lap dancers, binge drinkers and its natural landscape— is here combined with stories, both sad and comic, about the artists’ decade-long struggle to make art in the face of insensitive curators, awful bad luck and little money.
