 Bruce Nauman
«Raw Material – BRRR»

Nauman compresses experience into intense bursts of electronic image and sound. Images of the artist's face are shown on two TV monitors, with a similar image projected onto an adjacent wall. Unlike the «talking heads» seen on TV, these faces have little to tell us, as they repeatedly blurt, in a nonsensical gesture, the simple monosyllable »Brrr«.
