Speak Easy... (Voice Box) & Lorem Ipsum #2


Surgical plaster, metal hooks, digitally printed poster, mp3 player, headphones. With the voices of Stacey Goddard and Alexander Devrient.

at Tate Exchange,Tate Modern, 2019

This installation connects image, object, sound and technology to explore how different forms of communication alter our physical experience of language.


A female and male voice read the nonsensical Lorem Ipsum text in competition with one another and into separate ears. A distorted human face watches them awkwardly, the viewer is trapped in-between sound, object and image. A feeling of discomfort and absurdity is created, and raises questions about the gender hierarchy and binaries enforced by language.
