Conversation Piece is a ‘blank’ or ‘crossed out’ talk, collaboratively written to negotiate possibilities for live speech to exist under erasure. Passages of simultaneous speech interrupt the communicative potential of the individual texts while opening new interpretive possibilities between theory and practice; research and everyday life.

This is a 7:30 minute edit of the half-hour talk, performed on July 30th as part of the Stain Upon the Silence exhibition. Apologies for the poor resolution of the video – the audio remains unscathed.

Conversation Piece was written and performed by Tamarin Norwood and Alexandra Hyde.
