This Building, This Breath continues Kihlberg & Henry’s exploration of the disembodied voice in film and performance. For this piece, a voiceover is delivered live alongside a 15 minute video, activated whenever somebody enters the room. Here the duo explores cultural understandings of breathing as a device to play with the relationships between language, image, architecture and audience.
