The Conversation

Presented by Fabrica

Programmed in response Fabrica’s In Between Gallery, a contemporary photography exhibition featured in Fabrica’s street-facing window, currently presenting “Many Happy Days” by Duncan Poulton (December-April 2023).

Francis Ford Coppola’s paranoid and thrilling classic follows surveillance expert Harry Caul who is hired to tail a young couple. He tracks the pair through San Francisco’s Union Square, and manages to record a cryptic conversation and is left deciphering whether the couple are in danger.

Duncan Poulton’s work is collaged using exclusively found material online and explores the notion of the death of privacy online. Catherine Shoard of the Guardian states: You could write a book about The Conversation’s relationship to emerging tech, reassess it in the light of such a wholesale overhaul to surveillance and privacy. But… what touches me is Harry’s age-old psychological torment. He bears the guilt of the culpable outsider. He is silent witness to atrocities he knows are likely going on next door, but is paralysed when he tries to act.
