Sexy (0:50 2015) Susanne Wawra
Susanne Wawra’s “Songlines” videos look at placing short song lyrics into a real life context. The choruses of popular songs are spoken and the focus is on the mouth of the speaker. It invites the viewer to read the reenacted song lyrics closely or differently. The use of the mouth makes it close and personal, at times very intimate and adds an individual interpretation of the spoken word.
