Cunard Building. Sylivie Bloche ‘The Series: Speeches.’ 2012.

Video projected onto large floor mounted screen, the videos were not on a constant loop so you had to wait for them to cue up. Leaving you chance to play about with the projector bouncing off the back of your head if you wanted to, which I did.

Blocher  takes political speeches and utopian manifestos, each of which promised happiness or emancipation but failed to deliver. Then is re-imagined being spoken by someone else. It’s immediate and because it sits directly on the floor really pushes into your space. Liked this.
