On-site consultation

Abstract (English)

"...Forster's new work, “Mouth”, shown here for the first time is a strange room-within-a-room constructed of sagging fabric, inviting you to surround yourself with Forster's text. “Mouth” is the origin of language, covered in the patterns of the artist's words.

In “Duet” the unfamiliar space is based on the experience of a suspect stopped at a security checkpoint—a performative echo of the 2004 account by TV news coverage of would-be teenage suicide bomber Hassam Abdo being disarmed by Israeli officers. In his video installation, Forster presents a choreographed echo of his movements and physical vocabulary, as the protagonist enacts a space for himself responding to imagined directives from off-screen." -- Publisher's website.
