by Pablo Pijnappel
The record is a spoken-word, audio rendering of two accounts included in the publication Beyond Imagination/Zona de Crepúsculo — itself a literary interpretation of a performance of the same title presented in the Pijnappel’s solo exhibition at the Iberê Camargo Foundation, Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2018.
Manipulation the notions of translation, interpretation and memory, the two texts are interwoven into a bilingual (English and Portuguese), forked narrative. The record comes with a printed translation of the accounts into its opposite language (e.g. spoken English is written in Portuguese and vice-versa).
