Dialogue

1996 - 99  loop

The artist chose four representative languages spoken in multicultural cities, he then asked four speakers who respectively speak the mother tongue of the chosen languages to perform a short play using their differing languages. The play was about the impossibility of communication, but was performed as if the conversation in differing languages were conducted with no problem. This performance was recorded in video images and, based on the footage, four different versions were created.
