Conversation with my Husband
2020, 01:00 minutes, colour, no dialogue
Rachel Echenberg’s video series Conversations with my Family, attempts to gage the scale, weight, form and force of intimate interactions. This project measures familial connections against a variety of landscapes. The bodies create a disruptive presence within each natural setting, fluctuating our sense of time and scale. Echenberg presents one-to-one performances with her immediate family members. Each non-verbal conversation requires endurance and patience to structure a portrait of the relationship.
In Conversation with my Husband, two bodies run at each other in a vast empty landscape. At the point of embrace/collision they disappear, leaving only their cloud of dust. The landscape remains unchanged.
