Interview. 2011. Video. Courtesy of the artist

Interview is a video where an actor plays the role of a young artist and talks in cliche´s, so that the viewer cannot understand which work he is talking about. The author's idea is to convey a feeling that the main semantic part has been cut out from the interview and only the unimportant part remains. But “the unimportant” is actually the most important because it tells us about the author’s linguistic strategy. The most unimportant phrases (that, as we think, just clutter up our speech and cannot describe anything) identify the rhetoric chosen by any specific artist. These phrases have been taken from real interviews and discussions about works of art.
