Marina Gadonneix’s series ‘Remote Control’ documents empty television studios, off air and absent of their hosts. The constructed artificiality of these spaces becomes increasingly pronounced from one image to another. From cheesy game shows to serious news driven current affairs, all seem represented. Each space waits ominously to announce an immanent news flash of a big winning contestant or a looming natural disaster, on endless screens. These spaces are the factories of opinion and entertainment shaping our sense of the world.
