Conversation with my Teenager
2020, colour, no dialogue, location sound only
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 Teenager, parent and child face each other from two sides of a gushing river. They are tied together by a rope that crosses over the water. The line connecting them is fragile within the vast landscape, forcing them to stay in perpetual equilibrium.
Available as installation/projection: perpetual loop
