Lip Sync, 1969
Umatic Tape; b&w, sound
duration 01:01:00
An upside-down close-up of the artist‘s mouth, Nauman repeats the words „lip sync“ as the audio track shifts in and out of sync with the video. The disjunction between what is seen and heard keeps the viewer on edge, struggling to attach the sound of the words with the off-kolter movements of Nauman‘s mouth
