'Non Speaking Terms'

Visitors enter a gate and appear on two screens as video stills, below the portraits
random texts from television soaps are displayed.
Location: de Beyerd, Breda.


'A face that seems familiar, just not in this place; a text which is perfectly common, it just isn’t yours. It is even more alienating when you see your own face with the caption: ‘I am dismayed about so much self-satisfaction.’ A random system selects the lines. It is pure Kafka, you are led through a circuit and words are put into your mouth.'
(Sacha Bronwasser, Volkskrant)
