Wittstock Herma Auguste 2008 French Conversation. Marseille

- WITTSTOCK Herma Auguste, French Conversation, 2008.

45 minutes/live performance/Friche la Belle de Mai, terminus du tram, Mairie1er/7ème, Marseille.

Wearing a plain light violet dress, a spot light on me, I stand next to a wall, holding a glass of red wine in my hand.

I talk to the public. But for everybody in the room the language is unknown. Nobody understands a word. The language is created spontaneously in my head. Sometimes it is soft, sometimes urgent, sometimes fast and slow, a kind of an abstract concert ensues. 

In between I drink the red wine, but really slow and with my mouth closed. The wine is painting pictures on my dress.
