Anna Raymondo: False Friends

“False friends” is a ready-made, in which words themselves problematize both the process of translation and the status of language as a tool of communication.  Words become sounds, losing their meanings and finding their way to play. False friends are a source of misunderstandings, but in the present work they become the material of a composition based on different voices, telling similar words with different accents and meanings (Italian, French, Spanish, German, English), that the artist de-structures through a dadaist collage of cut up words.
