Walls Have Feelings (and They Are Not Afraid to Speak)
If the walls spoke, what would they tell us? Would you tell us? What if the walls already speak to us but we are not able to hear them? Do the walls speak in silence? Is it his silence that interferes with that undecidability that every regime of speech produces? Is its silence dissonance, openness, incoherence and resistance to an ordering of signs, which operates by subtraction at the borders of the reasonable? Can they say the unspeakable? Or do they keep silent about what cannot be said? Do they speak the walls because they have feelings? Or do they have feelings because they talk?
From the combination of the artist's audiovisual material with archive images, institutional videos, instructional videos or sequences of classic animated films, “Walls Have Feelings (and They Are Not Afraid to Speak)” stands as a conceptual essay which explores the agency of objects and their manifestations. When drilling the walls, walls and other elements that contain, hide and underpin the (in) visible and (in) audible forms of power and control, the proposal addresses the phenomenology of work and the past and present, somatic and cognitive exploitation mechanisms , emanating from the patriarchal capitalist system.
