Archie Salandin

The Smallest of Talk

Home / Category / Basement room 2 / The Smallest of Talk


2011, performance approx. 14mins

Jack Gunner and Russell Stirling perform a dialogue that explores how far one can follow a conversation if only one half of it is being heard or if its timing is distorted. Salandin derived the structure of the performance from a real everyday conversation, which after several stages of recording, editing and re-recording finally found its final form as an incoherent yet at times bafflingly sensible dialogue.
