On the Opening Night at Objectifs Lynn Lu and Birgitta Hosea presented a Skype dialogue performance. Lynn was in the Objectifs Gallery in Arab Street, Singapore; Birgitta at Central St. Martins, London. Birgitta’s face was projected onto Lynn’s face, so that their eyes and mouths overlapped, weaving in and out, sometimes in complete synchronicity and at others eerily distorted as they talked to one another.
The performance is divided into three parts: the first a series of Meisner exercises, the second a sequence of questions asked of the other, and the third a simultaneous recounting of personal experiences, desires, hopes and fears.
A 22-minute looped recording of the performance can currently be seen in the gallery.
