My Name on Your Lips

Video Installation


For the installation ‹My Name on Your Lips› by the artists Walter Riedweg and Mauricio Dias a drying line with bed sheets was put up in the exhibition space. On each end of the installation a video was projected onto one of the sheets.

On one sheet close-ups of very different mouths were shown which enunciated memories of love throughout their lives and the names of people with whom they had slept. On the opposite side of the room the faces and necks of the participants were projected. In voice over one could hear messages of love left on answering machines.

The installation was originally developed in 2000 for the Centro Cultural Candido Mendes, Rio de Janeiro. iart was responsible for the installation at the Centre PasquArt in Biel, Switzerland.
