The installation presented takes the form of a manzai (Japanese two-person comedy) skit. The setting is one cabin of a ship at sea. One person talks about how somewhere beyond the wall there is not a bugging device but a “blabbering device” that will not stop talking, and he can’t sleep at night... eventually the two of them begin searching for it together. The voice coming from some unknown source represents the (often compulsive) drive to organize our lives and the world into some fictional framework. The intimate relationship between statement and installation is manifested in one form of politics = aesthetics.
