ANECDOTAL COMPOSITION | 2011
Standing on the stairs, Gaëlle inflates balloons and places them on a stair. Meanwhile, I evoke a precise set of descriptions of people going up and down stairs (attitudes, clothes, words I’ve heard, and noted). Gaëlle is both, a composer and a conductor, by breathing she gives allows me to speak. When she takes a breath, I go silent, then I speak again when she starts to inflate balloons again. It's a true rhythmic composition that gives a tone to my voice, going from light whispers to shouted sentences, all depending on her position on the steps.
Performance, 22'16''; photograph, 30x45cm.
