I am Ophelia.
Whom the river does not want to keep.
Yesterday I have stopped killing myself.
(Heiner Müller)

Installative linguistic research in dicsarded media for 16 record players and 2 performers.

Using the figure of Ophelia and excerpts from James McNeill Whistler’s Ten O’Clock Lecture, in pasdedeuX blist raises the question of what hides behind all the projection surfaces and templates of a society of designers of meaning in art, literature, theater and critique, when original features shift through projection and re-encoding to another significance and which intentions lie behind these actions.

Composition: Gerriet Krishna Sharma
with Verena Lercher and Denzel Tristan Russel
