‘Domestic Arenas’: 
Presents an exhibition
of three films by 
Los Angeles-based 
Cameron Jamie — 
spanning a decade
of work by the award-
winning artist. 

... Finding subject
matter in diverse fields
of play — from the
suburban backyards
of Los Angeles, to the
living rooms of the
American South and
Alpine villages of Central
Europe — these three
works investigate the
ritualized performativity
of violence, arcane
tradition, and sexuality.

Captures the semi-
choreographed brawls
of Southern Californian
teens who mimic the
movements seen on
popular TV wrestling

Kranky Klaus, 
Documents the pagan
Christmas celebration
of the Krampus — a
menacing monster
character — in the
Alpine villages of
Austria’s Bad Gastein
Valley where St. Nicolas
leads participants
costumed in horns &
fur in a sanctioned
ritual of harassment. 

Massage the History, 
Records amateur
dancers, whom Jamie
found accidentally online,
who freely engage the
quotidian domestic scene
with their own sexually
suggestive movements.
