This could really be it: an interview with Slavoj Žižek

In this multi-channel projection I interview my unofficial mentor, philosopher and cultural theorist Slavoj Žižek (I uninvited, he unaware*).

Speaking through Žižek: interview with self-projection, three-channel projection installation, VCA Art Space Gallery

Using snippets from lectures, the conversation is collaged together from found recordings. To each question, an answer is derived using Žižek’s own cut-up process to self-reflect through the projected image.

Performance in the projected image, second & third projections, installation view, 2021

Column sized projections of projectors invigilate the conversation. Dust particles are caught between a crossfire of light overhead. Lumens lock eyes in the corners of the room: a stare down, as light strikes from all sides.

*This is a continuation of my previous explorations into the expanded field of unsolicited practice. Past, yet-to-be-informed, collaborators include Noah Fischer and Yoko Ono.
