MARCEL SAID… / 2000 projection
on projection is a a photo of young Marcel Duchamp and a Forrest Gump (simpatico fool) quotation, that is presented as being Duchamp’s about the often exaggerated misinterpretation of Marcel Duchamp

WOULD I LIE TO YOU / 2012 sound, 4’ 41’’, loudspeakers, light
electronically processed pop song “Would I Lie to You” by an American music duo Charles and Eddie

original sheet music is played by various percussion instruments, thus creating a militant rhythm; speech synthesis software transforms the lyrics to spoken words

a false, manipulated version of the song is created, although the text is trying to convince us otherwise, i.e. that we would never lie

lie as a dominant fact of the present moment

the positions that disseminate lies are trying to convince (us) that they are actually being sincere
