Are you asking me to speak French?

A collaborative performance piece created for ‘Passport to Pimlico’; an art event organised by Lana Locke.

Claire McArdle, Kate Slipper, Martin Edwards and Fabrice Desfard reinterpreted a broadcasted speech from the 1949 film; creating their own versions of the words from English to French and back again. Special thanks to the residents of Churchill Gardens for their participation on the day and the students of Sydenham School for helping me create the letter sculptures.
