(NOTE THIS IS A WORK IN PROCESS – THERE IS OVER 40HRS OF CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE NOT TRANSCRIBED BUT MORE WILL BE SAID ABOUT THIS PROJECT WHEN CONCLUDED)
I am interested in the relationship between the public and the private. In these one-on-one conversation, participants will meet and spend 30-45 minutes together, letting conversation flow organically. The time spent together will be archived through my notes, drawings, and an audio recording, informing future work. In this way, a private conversation becomes public.
I am drawn to conversations with friends and strangers as a performative art practice. My previous exhibitions were an exploration of these kinds of conversations between people and objects, time and places. I make a conscious choice to share intimate talks where I am not guided by my own preconceived ideas rather, with someone else, we work to dissolve our egos in order to learn something new about each other and ultimately ourselves.
