Benjamin Lichtenstein, ‘I know you will be happy here’
“We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.” —Werner Heisenberg
What is at play when we give voice to an image? In this set of performance lectures presented by Interval—a new platform for nonfiction representation in the field of contemporary art—Melbourne artists Eugenia Lim, Benjamin Lichtenstein and Gabrielle de Vietri explore the relationship between thought and affect. Pull up a stool as they each narrate a selection of video and imagery drawn from their private and public lives, experimenting with research, narrative and delivery. These performances complicate the power dynamics behind the act of inscribing images, and question the idea of authorship in nonfiction representation.
