Points of View

Manuel Saiz

2008, 10:00 minutes, colour, English


Installation Documentation, 5 minutes 21 seconds.

Two video monitors on a table placed back to back. On the first one we can see fragments of various interviews in which the artist seems to talk about his work. The second monitor shows interviews of several international artists. The images on both monitors are almost identical. This is due to the first one being a re-enactment of what happens on the second monitor. Only the first monitor has the volume active and one could say that the artists on the second monitor speak through Saiz's voice.
