Two-channel HD video (color, sound)
Duration: 23:44 min
The point of departure for Tao Hui's two-channel video work Double Talk is the story of a dead actor. Yet, as the different levels of narrative and analysis are interwoven — a recurrent theme on the artist's practice — the work draws in the viewer to engage both with the story and the process in which it is told. Presented side-by-side, one video depicts a figure, accompanied by journalists with microphones and cameras, visiting a number of sites: a hospital, a restaurant, an urban site and a stage.
