And After It Has Gone
Performance for Parlour Dictionnaire, Dr. Johnson’s House Museum, London 2016
A dual performance, one performer sits upstairs staring into a mirror, occasionally placing white gloves upon his hands, standing up and listening to the viewers. The things he’s heard are transmitted to the mirror in whispers, and then broadcast by two other performers hidden behind curtains on the lower floors of the museum.
This work examines the notion of the language as a mapping of coordinates in time, capturing a rapidly fading moment, and how this process can be manipulated through symbolic erosion.
