A Language Control Center monitors the masses and re-trains bad speakers, those whose diction is not fluid, those who cannot speak several languages, whose message is not well understood, and whose speech is monotonous. Those who have the Trouble.
For her second solo presentation at Sandwich, Anaïs Touchot dives into a world in which success depends on language skills, diction, and persuasive public speaking. She explores the unseen side of The Center using bad punchlines, presentation advice, and songs, questioning power relationships. The personal office of the Center’s director becomes especially telling and, as it unfolds in front of us, it becomes obvious that Control is the true target.
As per her usual, Anaïs creates an open environment in which everyday objects and art pieces are fused together beyond separation, open to human touch, diving in without doubts or hesitations.
This exhibition is organized in partnership with The French Institute in Romania and is part of Anaïs Touchot’s residency in Bucharest. This event is part of the Project “The Real Show @SNDW”.
