This Building, This Breath
9 March 2016
Camden Arts Centre, London
Part of Postscript, 9 – 13 March 2016
This Building, This Breath continues Kihlberg & Henry’s exploration of the disembodied voice in film and performance. For this piece, a voiceover is delivered live alongside a 15 minute video, activated whenever somebody enters the room. Here the duo explores cultural understandings of breathing as a device to play with the relationships between language, image, architecture and audience.
Originally commissioned by fig-2. This Building, This Breath will tour to Plymouth Arts Centre and Grundy Art Gallery June 2016, supported by Arts Council England.
