Dear Patient Listener (2010)
Performance, 6 min.

Dear Patient Listener is a speech written to be performed at the Second World Congress of Free Artists organized by Camel Collective at Århus Center for Contemporary Art in Denmark november 20th 2010. This congress resuscitates the First Congress, in Alba (1956) organized by Asger Jorn and Pinot Gallizio.

I was invited to contribute with a performance reflecting on art and pedagogy. Dear Patient Listener takes on the fictive perspective of a young art student who stutters. Through out the text the actor is nervously stuttering.
