Performance

Voice Over

The audience was seated in the dark facing inwards in a square and surrounding a tape-recorder.

The artst's taped voice asked thirteen questions about a woman, and each question was answered in turn by the artist, by flashing a torch on a script. This sequence was repeated four times, but with different answers to the same questions, and with the artist moving around the wall and becoming more emotionally involved. Four seperate 'truths' were presented in contrast to the static, mechanical and decreasingly dominant questions on the tape.
