Title

Lip sync

1969


Artist

Bruce Nauman

United States of America

06 Dec 1941 -


About

With the camera mounted upside down, framing only his mouth and neck, Nauman repeats the phrase "lip sync" over and over in loud whisper. Sound and image are intentionally unsynchronized, while the upside-down view of his lips and tongue in action provides a further disorienting quality to the work.
