Three part work (photography, print, performance), 2007/18


In Ghosttrap Nadia Lichtig translates spoken words into photographs and texts, presenting these media in different spaces and at different times. This three part work is based on interviews with anonymous individuals, each of whom recounts his or her memory of a traumatic experience. The first two parts consist of the photographs and texts displayed in the exhibition space. The third  part consists of a performative lecture, in which Nadia Lichtig plays a recording of the original interviews on an old pick-up. She then dons a pair of headphones, and re-enacts the original interviews repeating the words she hears. (R.K.)

At night time, a row of 45 lights immerged in ponds placed behind the columns of the facade are making visible the mouvements of the wind, by the transmission of its strengh and its speed measured with a meteorologic station installed on the roof of the building.
