[I don't speak language] A set of obsolete devices confesses its inability to express itself. As words become an erratic verbal collapse, "I Don't Speak Language" echoes the paradox of communicating the incompetence to communicate.
Inspired by “cut-up” techniques, the artists use fragments of phrases and sound elements such as words, syllables and concrete sounds to create an audiovisual sculpture. From this phrase, which is in itself an oxymoron, the work seeks to acknowledge the existence of symbols through the process of breaking them. [2018-2019]
