03 Mar Navigating Voices
‘The artist navigates, rather than conducts, the flow of the conversation. The artist asks the instigating question, listens, sets a context for action, creates an aesthetic milieu in which an event is mutually created. The exchanges depend on the talents of the speakers to respond to the insights, fallibilities and allure of each other. This involves not only the matter conversed, but the subjectivities engaged, which are, in the action, opened to change. It is an improvisatory, slow activism’.
