Description:


2011, video 4mins 20secs and miscellaneous items

Salandin’s interactive installation creates an illusion of live performance and playfully discusses the limits of understanding by exploring questions of visibility and language. When only silhouettes of objects can be seen and their names are not revealed, how far can one rely on his judgment on what is being discussed? The work also asks how one can believe what is being said, when someone seems to speak a completely different language.
