Interlocutions literally means "a conversation" and "dialogue". This video however presents ten short statements that are juxtaposed onto the bodies that are in slow motion. Thus the image and the fragmented conversations are disrupted and removed from the body. The only interlocutor, an old armchair, remains at the center of the black videotaped background. Its ambiguous presence seems to psychologically question the minimal movements performed by the subjects. Some people sit on the chair, others walk around it, and the others keep their distance from it. These short statements uttered by ten different people were registered, during the summer of 1999 when I was living and studying in Lubbock, Texas. Some of these accounts reflect upon the identity of the moving, displaced and walking subjects. While sharing their humorous or serious stories, ten videotaped people speak English with different accents. This fact emphasizes various geographical and cultural contexts to which these performing subjects belong to.
