Speaking in tongues 1995
double life exhibition, King street London, UK 1995.
Envelopes 'A' and 'B' were given out to the audience. The envelopes contained CARDS describing situations, which prompted different dialogues. They were marked with a number, which matched a number on the floor. These numbers were arranged in pairs. The participants positioned themselves in their numbers. They opened their envelopes and followed the instructions to develop the dialogues in the CARDS. Participants were not allowed to use language but spoke using nonsense words and gestures. Both envelopes contained the same situations but in reverse order. I wanted the participants to talk in nonsense words so that it would create a greater need to communicate with each other and at the same time create a more disconcerting and incomprehensible conversation. When people came to the opening they thought we were just talking as the performers and the audience became the same.
