audio, text

15 mins, loop

The audio work invites the visitor a view into the personal inner workings of the narrator by means of a muddled, frenzied speech about love. Relying on figures of speech associated with an endless array of love songs we are confronted with on a daily basis, the work questions to what extent our conception of love has been influenced by pop culture. How does one talk about love without sounding like a cliché? The medium of language, which is usually understood as a tool for comprehension and order, is used to demonstrate the impossibility of these two aspects.
