What does it matter how many lovers you have if none of them gives you the universe

Atelier Nord ANX, 04.04.-19.04.2013,
Thursday – Sunday, from 12 – 17.
Artist Talk by Bjørn Erik Haugen Thursday, 18 April at 8 pm.

This project by Bjørn Erik Haugen is a transcription for mechanical piano of a lecture by the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan. The audience’s response in the lecture is played by a guitar amplifier. The video of the lecture is screened with a video projector. 

During the lecture where Lacan talks about the language as a foundation for our understanding of our surroundings, he is abruptly disrupted by a student who ruins his lecture notes with flour and water. Read more. The project is supported by Norsk Kulturråd.
