Portrait

"Portrait," 2020 Video installation, mixed media, 5 min loop, with two sound systems ( one in the room and one in headset).


Two different sounds play in Portrait: the sound heard in the room features advisory voices on a murmuring background: Lecturing about appearance or behavior in a critical tone. In the headphones, a beautiful voice reads a poem, Letter from a man in solitary, by Nazem Hekmat. The public can choose to escape the rumoring voices by listening to it. 

Thanks for the kind participation of Mark Le Ruez.
