Words in Silence - Installation for the Police Cells
Words in Silence, Video (1998) 2.50 min
Curse on my Dreams, Video (1998) 1.50min
Silence is not necessarily emptiness but may express that which cannot be transmitted through sound or put into words. In this installation architectures of silence make space for an exchange that reveals a desire to speak and a persistent failure of the endeavor, foregrounding an emotional subtext.
