Begüm Erciyas works in her performances with the power of the voice and the act of speaking. After the successful Voicing Pieces, this year she presents a new creation that focuses on the experience of the voice as an uncanny medium. Because, although we use it to express our personal convictions and feelings, in the digital age we are often in doubt about who is speaking: is it a person or a machine?

Doubt and this conviction alternate constantly in Pillow Talk. Spread over a hilly landscape, the public enters into a dialogue with a virtual conversation partner. An artificial voice functions as a mediator, a companion and a mirror. While conversations are being constructed one word at a time, impressions are being shared, naps are being taken and time passes, Pillow Talk invites you to engage in an intimate relationship with the non-human.
